Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church begins synod

Catholic World News - August 13, 2013

The bishops of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church -- the largest of the Eastern Catholic churches in full communion with the Holy See -- have gathered in Kiev to begin a weeklong synod devoted to the new evangelization, the Religious Information Service of Ukraine reported.

The task of the synod, said Major Archbishop Sviatoslav Shevchuk, is “to make a modern man see how to share the faith, how we, the believers of the twenty-first century, can know the Word of God in today’s culture.”
