The churches

The Church in Ukraine is the only institution that inspires any confidence in the people, because it has no connection with either the government or their employers. A lot of new churches are being built. It is precisely the Greek-Catholic Church - a typical provincial Church for centuries - that is the active heart of the city. Every year before Eastern Sunday, halfway during Lent, the biggest procession of the year is held - it advances right through the city from St. Michael`s Church to St. George Cathedral.
