On the day of the celebration of one of the twelve biggest feasts of the Orthodox Church – the Transfiguration of the Lord on August 19- the Metropolitan Epiphaniy of Kyiv and All Ukraine performed a Divine Liturgy in the Cathedral of St. Michael with the Golden Domes.
With His Beatitude concelebrated Elder Metropolitan Emmanuel of Chalcedon (Ecumenical Patriarchate), the Vicar of the church, Archbishop Agapit of Visgorot, the monks of the monastery and priests who were invited.
After reading the Gospel, Epiphaniy preached to the faithful.
Then a pan-Ukrainian prayer was read to end the catastrophic pandemic.
