Pray for Ukraine at Easter

Hope for the people of Ukraine

Easter is the brightest, most majestic holiday in Ukraine, and it is celebrated with a variety of traditions. Some of them were inherited from their ancestors, keeping peculiar rituals and activities intact.

The word for ‘Easter’ in Ukrainian is Velykden’, which translates to ‘Great Day’, and it is one of the biggest holidays in the country. Following the Orthodox faith and calendar it is celebrated the week after the Roman Catholic Easter.  

People lent and fast with strict devotion, as the country is passionate about adhering to the faith.

Everyone awaited Easter day, as a festive mood would bloom throughout the country and families would come together to celebrate with food.

Not this year!

This Easter is a very different story. Being ravaged by a savage, merciless attack to which we are now also hearing about atrocities against civilians. The Ukrainian people are strong in faith and resolve.  We are seeing how much so as they defend their freedom, country and way of life.

Join us in sending messages of hope and support at Easter and send your message to the people of Ukraine in solidarity with Our Lady of Perpetual Help and Jesus the Redeemer.

Prayers and messages collected will be sent to Mykola Bychok CSsR, Eparch for Ukrainian Catholics in Oceania.
