The Ukrainian World Congress extends sincerest greetings to all Hierarchs and spiritual pastors of Ukrainian Churches, and to Ukrainians worldwide, on the occasion of the celebration of Christ’s Resurrection and wishes everyone good health, peace, harmony and prosperity.
Every year, with the coming of spring, Christians mark the greatest of Holy Days – the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. Symbolizing the triumph of life over death, good over evil and light over darkness, this Holy Day lifts our spirits and strengthens our faith in a brighter future.
Easter is a special celebration for Ukrainians around the world. During the Easter Divine Liturgy we praise the Saviour and pray for protection for our families, friends and our spiritual homeland – Ukraine. Easter is also closely linked with rich religious traditions and spiritual folklore that we cherish and pass from generation to generation.
May the Resurrected Christ strengthen our faith and provide us with new energy, particularly during these trying times for Ukraine, and may His light never extinguish in our souls!
Christ has risen! Truly He has risen!
