UKRAINIANS NOW PRAY NOT ONLY IN GDANSK, BUT ALSO IN GDYNIA
Orthodox and Greek Catholic churches today celebrate the second day of Christmas holidays. The liturgy of St. John of Gold is served in the churches. After worship, the believers go to visit each other and celebrate. It is reported by Upmp.news with the reference to Polish Radio.
From January 6, the regular services of God will be held not only in Gdansk, which is above the Baltic Sea, but also in the city of Gdynia, which is located nearby. “Due to the fact that the Greco-Catholic community in this region is becoming more numerous, we have decided to serve the faithful in Gdynia”, said Father Jozef Ułicki, the pastor of the Church of St. Bartholomew and the Protection of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Gdansk:
“On Christmas Day the liturgy in Gdynia begins, because there are many faithful Greek Catholics. However, there are many people from Ukraine working in this city. Therefore, the Wroclaw-Gdansk Bishop has shown the initiative and initiated these Greek Catholic liturgies of the Byzantium-Ukrainian rite.”
The services of God of the Byzantium – Ukrainian rite will be recited every Sunday at 8 o’clock in the Collegium of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Queen of Poland, in Gdynia.
