As part of an address to honor those who have shown unwavering support of Ukraine throughout the war, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy honored Metropolitan Archbishop Borys Gudziak of the Ukrainian Catholic Archeparchy of Philadelphia on Thursday with a presidential award.
Father Volodymyr Radko had one of the best days of his life — and one of the worst — in a span of just 12 days. On Feb. 12, he was ordained at St. Sophia Church on the campus of Ukrainian Catholic University in Lviv, the city where he was born. On Feb. 24, the Russian invasion of Ukraine began.
Faith is sustaining and inspiring Ukrainians as they fight to defend their nation from invading Russian forces, the Ukrainian Catholic archbishop of Philadelphia said March 10.
