Dean of the European and head of the German deanery of the UOC-KP Volodymyr Chaika served in August on the feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord in 9 German cities and towns. For the first time, diaspora communities gathered in Leverkusen, Seligenstadt, Arnsberg, according to the UOC-KP Facebook page.
“Only in three days from August 19 to 21, the dean and his assistants traveled more than 1,250 km to the places of worship… in some cities, services will be held on a regular basis, in others and remote ones, if possible, on major holidays. But there are still many requests and many Ukrainians from different places of Europe are waiting for the service of God.
The European Deanery of the Kyiv Patriarchate in Germany continues to provide humanitarian assistance to hospitals and the military in Ukraine, help with finding housing, provide advice on moral and spiritual care for forced migrants. In just 6 months of the war, during which more than 4 million Ukrainians left for Europe, of which about one million went to Germany, the dean served in 20 cities in Germany, Denmark, and the Netherlands,” the UOC-KP reports.
Earlier it was reported that Filaret was opening a seminary of the UOC-KP in Europe.
