Vorzel, Ukraine, May 11, 2022 / 04:25 am
A Catholic charity announced this week that it would fund the restoration of a Ukrainian seminary looted by Russian forces.
Aid to the Church in Need (ACN) said on May 9 that it planned to cover the costs of building repairs and replacing stolen furniture and equipment at the Catholic seminary in Vorzel, 18 miles from the capital Kyiv.
The pontifical foundation’s support should enable the Major Theological Seminary of the Sacred Heart of Jesus to reopen in September, seven months after 25 seminarians were forced to flee the Russian advance in northern Ukraine.
ACN made the announcement after representatives visited the seminary in the Latin Rite Diocese of Kyiv-Zhytomyr and met with its rector Father Ruslan Mikhalkiv.
