News of the letter was announced by the Polish Bishops’ Conference (KEP) on Wednesday.

The Major Archbishop of Kyiv-Halych, Sviatoslav Shevchuk, expressed his gratitude to the Polish delegation, led by Archbishop Stanisław Gądecki, for their trip to Ukraine last week, Polish state news agency PAP reported.

‘Thank you for your spiritual and moral support to Ukraine’

Shevchuk wrote: “I would like to extend warm words of enormous gratitude for your visit, as well as for the spiritual and moral support you showed for our Church and the whole Ukrainian nation.”

He added that Ukrainians were defending their “sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity, as well as the right to self-determination.”

Poland ‘ceaselessly ready’ to help Ukraine 

Shevchuk thanked Gądecki for his “words of comfort and reassurance” that Poland’s Catholic Church and the entire nation were “ceaselessly ready” to help “those suffering as a result of Russia’s war operations.”   

Ukraine’s top churchman invited Gądecki, who heads the Polish Bishops’ Conference, to join a meeting of Ukrainian bishops, to be held in the southeastern Polish city of Przemyśl in July. 

The delegation of Polish Catholic Church officials, who also included Archbishop Wojciech Polak, the Primate of Poland, visited Ukraine between May 17 and 20. 

They travelled to the capital Kyiv and the western city of Lviv, where they said prayers for the victims of Russian atrocities in the Ukrainian towns of Bucha and Irpin.

Wednesday was day 91 of Russia’s war on Ukraine.
