The Encounter of Ukrainian Orthodox and Catholic Hierarchs of North America is now an annual event, where the hierarchy of both Ukrainian Orthodox and Ukrainian Catholic Uniate churches meet in fellowship. Both the Bible and the tragedy of the Holomodor demonstrate the basic unity of Ukrainian Christianity, and the need for dialogue and reconciliation; thankfully, this process is now ongoing.
The Metropolitan Andrey Sheptytsky Institute, located at St. Paul's University in Ottawa, Canada, hosted the January 2011 Encounter.
The Huffington Ecumenical Institute and LMU will honor the memory of the millions of Ukrainians, Russians and Khazakhs who died in the 1932-33 famine on Wednesday, November 16, 2011.
This guide was created to coincide with the Huffington Ecumenical Institute's commemoration of the Holodomor, making additional information available to those interested in this international tragedy, its causes and effects.
A good number of community members joined the Huffington Ecumenical Institute in November, 2011 for an evening of liturgy and discussion centered on the famine in Ukraine of 1932-1933. An ecumenical memorial service for the victims of the Holodomor will be followed by reflections on the way in which memorializing the genocide has brought together Ukrainians of different faith traditions in the United States.
