The head of the OCU, Epifaniy Dumenko, at a thanksgiving service on the occasion of his visit to Alexandria, expressed the hope that Patriarch Theodore would serve in his “native church” (Trinity Cathedral, – Ed.) in Odessa, reports pomisna.info.
“The city of Odessa was the place of your ministry and remains forever in your soul. And although it was in danger from the beginning of the great aggression, I believe that also thanks to your holy prayers, the Lord protects it to this day. And that blessed day will come when Your Beatitude will again be able to set foot on his land and offer prayers in your native temple, which we also pray for and what we will continue to work on,” said Dumenko.
