The faithful, led by Bishop Victor, visited the Holy Mountain Grabarka in Poland and venerated the icon of the Monk Onuphrius the Great of the 15th century.

A delegation of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church, headed by Bishop Viktor (Kotsaba) of Baryshevka, is on a pilgrimage to the shrines of the Polish Church, reports the UOC hierarch on his Facebook page.

On September 19, Ukrainian pilgrims visited the Holy Mountain Grabarka where the Orthodox convent of the Polish Church is located. “We visited Grabarka – the mountain of Crosses, which the Poles call “Orthodox Czestochowa ”, where St. Marta and Maria's Convent founded in 1947 is located,” writes Bishop Viktor.

The pilgrims also visited the stavropegic Yablochyn Saint Onuphrius's Monastery in the Lublin province, founded at the end of the 15th century. Here the believers of the UOC venerated the icon of the patron saint of the monastery, St. Onuphrius the Great, revered in the shrine.

As reported, Metropolitan Nikodim concelebrated with the hierarchs of the Polish Church in Gorlice.
