The Catholic Church in Poland is mobilizing to help thousands of Ukrainians seeking refuge in the country following the launch of a full-scale Russian invasion.
Parishes and Church institutions in the Central European country are opening their doors to a stream of refugees crossing the 332-mile border with Ukraine.
Poland’s Catholic bishops have asked priests to inform them of parish facilities that could serve as shelters for refugees or offer other forms of assistance.
