Enthronement of Bishop Hlib Lonchyna as Apostolic Exarch for Ukrainian Catholics in Great Britain and Ireland: Many Years!

Kyr Hlib with Patriarch Sviatoslav at the Enthronement
Fr John Salter, chairman, writes in Chrysostom, Pascha 2012:

The enthronement of Bishop Hlib was a very happy occasion and also unique, ecumenically speaking, not so much that there were priests of Bishop Hlib Lochyna, and representatives of tthe Ukrainian Orthodox Church there too, but also an Elder of the Free Presbyterian Church of Scotland – “The Wee Frees” in the person of Mr. James MacDonald.

The enthronement was performed by the Apostolic Nuncio to the Court of St. James, His Excellency Archbishop Mennini, Bishop Alan Hopes, representing the Archbishop of Westminster. Also present were the late Archimandrite Serge Keleher, representatives of the Byelorussian Catholic community and the Melkite Greek Catholics, together with members of Bishop Hlib's family and friends.

We are happy to report that Bishop Hlib has come onto the Committee of the Society of St. John Chrysostom, and we wish him Ad Multos Annos in his episcopate.
