Ukrainian prelate speaks of Church’s growth

In a recent talk in California, the Ukrainian Greek Catholic bishop of Paris discussed the resurgence of the Church in Ukraine over the past 25 years.

“When our Church came out of the underground in 1990, our Church had been decimated by decades of intense Soviet persecution," said Bishop Borys Gudziak. “The ranks of our clergy had been reduced to only 300, mostly elderly priests with an average age of 75."

“Today, our Church in Ukraine, despite war and severe economic pressures, has grown dramatically, with more than 3,000 priests with an average age of 38," he continued. “Our seminaries are producing hundreds of new priests every year, and vocations are strong."
