Argentina – From 28 February to 5 March 2007 in Buenos Aires, the session of the Permanent Synod of Bishops of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church (UGCC) met. The meeting was dedicated mostly to preparations for the Patriarchal Synod of Bishops of the UGCC, to take place in Philadelphia, USA, from 26 September to 5 October 2007.
According to Patriarch Lubomyr (Husar), head of the UGCC, the task of the synod is to have a deep vision of the problems of the whole church and its life in full. “Later, we will be able to submit data for the consideration of the synod, to outline the situation in individual parishes, so that all bishops can be well informed about events in the church. This is vitally important as, in this way, the synod can function as a living body and be well-briefed to find solutions to major problems,” explained Patriarch Lubomyr.
