On Saturday, CNEWA President Msgr. John E. Kozar participated in a pilgrimage to Zarvanytsia, Ukraine, as part of his pastoral visit to the country. There, he shared a message with thousands, conveying greetings from those suffering in this time of war:

Msgr. John Kozar offered his thanks for the invitation to take part in the pilgrimage. He conveyed greetings from Cardinal Timothy Dolan, archbishop of New York, and the faithful of the Catholic Church of America and Canada: “I offer to you this solidarity in prayer, and in suffering, of millions of faithful [who] have been forced to flee their homes, and even their homelands,” said Msgr. Kozar. “Here today before Mary, the mother of our savior, and our mother, we humbly seek her comfort and security. … Your presence these days at this holy place reminds us that we, too, are a holy people.”
