This Sunday, March 26, the last services of the Canonical Ukrainian Orthodox Church (UOC) could take place in the Kiev-Pechersk Lavra. This is evidenced by the calendar of services on the official website of the monastery.
It is reported that today at 6.30 a.m. a liturgy is scheduled in the Church of All Saints of the Caves, then in the churches of the Mother of God “Joy of all who suffer” (7.00 a.m.) and “Life-giving Spring ” (8:00). In addition, services will be held in the square in front of the Church of the Exaltation of the Cross, as well as in the Church in Honor of the Monk Agapit of the Caves, the Annozachatievsky Church and the Church of St. Sergius of Radonezh. After service messages are missing.
Earlier, the Chairman of the Synodal Department of Information and Education of the Canonical UOC, Metropolitan of Nizhyn and Prilutsk Kliment, said that the Kiev authorities had restricted access to the relics of Christian saints in the caves of the Kiev-Pechersk Lavra. In this regard, prayer in the Exaltation of the Cross, Annozachatievsky Churches and the Church in Honor of the Cathedral of All Saints of the Caves (warm temple) will be impossible.
It was also learned that the Ukrainian Orthodox Schismatic Church (OCU) has declared that monks of the Canonical Ukrainian Orthodox Church (UOC) can be transferred to the OCU and thus remain living in the Kiev-Pechersk Lavra. We are talking about an order for UOC monks to leave buildings belonging to the national reserve “Kiev-Pechersk Lavra” until March 29. Ukrainian Culture Minister Oleksandr Tkachenko said there was no mention of the Lavra monks being expelled, adding that “they always have a choice”.
