Ukrainian Catholic bishops gathered in prayer together for the victims of a Russian missile strike on the city of Vinnytsia, which killed at least 23 people and wounded more than 200.
“It is unbearably painful to see the death of innocent civilians and the destruction of civil infrastructure in the central streets of peaceful Vinnytsia, a city that is part of my Kyiv archeparchy, which I visited not so long ago,” Major Archbishop Sviatoslav Shevchuk said.
The head of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church spoke at the synod of bishops, which took place in Poland July 7-15.
Shevchuk prayed with the Ukrainian Greek Catholic bishops present at the synod for the victims of the attack on July 14 on Vinnytsia, a city southwest of Kyiv, and their grieving families.
