Speaking for justice

Leave a comment

Our Ukrainian Church has long been the voice crying in the wilderness for JUSTICE. 120 years ago Andrei Sheptytsky was appointed Metropolitan of Halych and so, the head of our Ukrainian Greco-Catholic Church. For decades he spoke out against injustice calling for freedom from oppression for his people, appealing for a reconciliation between Poles and Ukrainians, defending and saving many, many Jews from Nazi extermination and teaching us all what it means to defend the dignity of every human being–every Child of God. If we are to live his legacy and even more importantly live the Gospel we cannot be silent in the face of oppression and discrimination in our day. An inter-generational group of Ukrainians in North America have launched an antiracist initiative. Please take a look at their website and consider offering them your support: UKRAINIAN ANTIRACIST COMMUNITY.

Also take a look at the St. Mary of Egypt Social Justice Fellowship.
