UOC community prays outside seized church in the village of Stary Gvozdets (PHOTOS)

On October 22, at 7:00, the UOC community of the village of Stary Gvozdets of the Ivano-Frankivsk region was forced to pray out in the street. As a UOJ correspondent reports, at 11:00 the representatives of the Kyiv Patriarchate came to the church and also held the service without going into the temple.

The village authorities, with the support of the Kyiv Patriarchate, initiated a meeting in the village, where most of the local residents expressed their desire to move to the Kyiv Patriarchate. The UOJ correspondent talked to some residents who had voted for the transfer and found out that these people do not go to church.

The UOC community did not participate in this “referendum”.

The Ivano-Frankivsk eparchy has already applied to law enforcement agencies, government officials and international organizations with a request to protect the rights of the UOC community in the village of Stary Gvozdets.
