Ukrainian Synod in London, September 2009

His Beatitude Cardinal Lubomyr Husar, with Fr John Salter (right), on the Cardinal's 2008 visit to London

From September 25-30 the Ukrainian Cathedral of the Holy Family in London will host a meeting of the Permanent Synod of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, led by His Beatitude Cardinal Lubomyr Husar, Major-Archbishop of Kyiv, and assisted by leading hierarchs from the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church from Ukraine and across the world, including Bishop David Motiuk JCD, Eparch of Edmonton, Canada, and Bishop Paul Chomnycky, Eparch of Stamford, Connecticut. Also present will be Bishop Hlib Lonchyna, who on Sunday 27th September will be officially installed as Apostolic Administrator of the Ukrainian Exarchate for Great Britain.

The Permanent Synod forms the standing Patriarchal Council for Cardinal Husar. This meeting is especially important as it is preparing for the Synod of the whole hierarchy of the Ukrainian Catholic Church, which is due to take place in Kyiv in the autumn and looks set to be the largest gathering of the Ukrainian hierarchy since the 16th century.

Fr John Salter, chairman of the Society, will be welcoming the Cardinal and the other members of the Synod upon the occasion of their historic visit to London.
