"The Ukrainian World Congress (UWC) congratulates His Beatitude Epifaniy on being installed Primate of the Orthodox Church of Ukraine during an enthronement ceremony held in St. Sophia Sobor on February 3, 2019," the report says.
The establishment of a single local Orthodox Church of Ukraine and the granting of a Tomos of autocephaly are historic moments of global magnitude that complete the process of attaining the independence of the Orthodox Church of Ukraine from Russia, and realize the aspirations of many generations of Orthodox Christians in Ukraine and the diaspora.
“The Ukrainian World Congress shares in the joy of the enthronement and assures His Beatitude Epifaniy of its all-round support for the Orthodox Church of Ukraine, particularly in addressing important current issues including the unification of Orthodox communities, the recognition of the Orthodox Church of Ukraine in the world and the strengthening of its ties with the global Ukrainian community. In His Beatitude Epifaniy the Orthodox Church of Ukraine has a selfless and distinguished leader prepared to accomplish the complex tasks of its development and consolidation throughout the world,” UWC President Paul Grod stated.
