From the Field: CNEWA in Ukraine, Day 1

Msgr. Peter I. Vaccari, CNEWA president, Adriana Bara, national director in Canada, and Anna Dombrovska, program officer, visited agency-sponsored programs in Lviv on a pastoral visit to Ukraine from 3-7 June. Upon arriving in Rzeszow, Poland, the team traveled to Lviv and made their way to Ukrainian Catholic University, where they were housed for the duration of their visit and sheltered during air raid alarms.

Hear more about their first day of project visits in Dr. Bara’s audio report below.

Sunday, 4 June

The first day of program visits began with a tour of Ukrainian Catholic University (UCU), followed by a visit to a UCU-run child care center for children who were orphaned or separated from their families by war and displaced children with special needs. Msgr. Vaccari concelebrated a Divine Liturgy for Pentecost at Lviv Theological Seminary of the Holy Spirit, celebrated by Bishop Volodymyr Hrutsa, C.Ss.R., auxiliary bishop of Lviv. The team also met with Ms. Stawnychy, the president of Caritas Ukraine, later that day.
