Thank you to all who responded to the Ukrainian Catholic Eparchy of Edmonton’s “Becoming a More Welcoming Parish” survey. The Eparchial Pastoral Council and I have compiled the results and will be using them as a foundation for engaging our Ukrainian Catholic community in the process of renewal, as addressed in the 25 Year Pastoral Plan (the Plan).

The Kiss of Peace is an expression of reconciliation and unity between the people present at a liturgical assembly. It originates with the widespread custom, in the ancient Western Mediterranean world, of people greeting each other with a kiss on the cheek. This was the custom in ancient Judea and was also practiced by Christians.Learn More

More recently, my brother Bishops and I also noted media reports a few weeks ago which quoted you as saying that the consultation, “while not formally announced, has begun.” Our Church and our Conference are deeply concerned about the implications of the Court’s ruling.
