Archbishop Zbigņev Stankevičs visited with Ukrainian refugee children in Latvia on Friday, welcoming them to the country as an exhibit of their artwork is being prepared.
The Archbishop of Riga’s March 25 visit to the city’s Registration Center for Ukrainians marked the feast of the Annunciation and the consecration of Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart.
Caritas Latvija and the Church in the country are organizing the exhibit of drawings made by Ukrainian refugee children, which will open in May.
The art exhibition “is intended to help children to overcome mental strains they endured whilst escaping Russian aggression in Ukraine and to help them feel more at home in a new country,” a representative of the Archdiocese of Riga told CNA.
