The letter below was released by the Ukrainian Catholic Church’s Metropolitan Archeparchy of Philadelphia on June 26.
Glory be to Jesus Christ!
Dear Reverend Fathers, Venerable Monastics and Beloved Faithful of the Philadelphia Archeparchy!
As you may already know, parts of western Ukraine are under water due to strong torrential rains that have been falling for several days earlier this week. Two regions, Ivano-Frankivsk and Chernivtsi, were affected the most.
