Meet the leader of Ukrainian-rite Catholics

May 4, 2013
The Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, having long suffered under Communist persecution, flourished once the Iron Curtain finally fell. The strength of this Eastern rite extends to the growing Ukrainian diaspora, particularly in Canada. In 2011, when the Ukrainian bishops needed to elect a new leader for their growing church, they turned to the youngest member from among their ranks: Sviatoslav Shevchuk, then only 40 years old. Witness host Fr. Thomas Rosica sat down with Archbishop Shevchuck during his recent visit to Canada.
