The Greek Catholic presence is inalienable in the dialogue between Roman Catholics and Orthodox Christians, stressed Sviatoslav Shevchuk.

The Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church in Ukraine will embody all the achievements of the ecumenical dialogue between the Roman Catholic Church and Orthodoxy, said the head of the Uniates Sviatoslav Shevchuk at a conference in Kyiv on October 26.

He highlighted that the Greek Catholic presence is an integral part of the dialogue between Orthodox and Roman Catholics, and "our Church is an active participant of this path".

So, Shevchuk noted, recently the UGCC adopted an updated ecumenical concept that meets the "new circumstances of interchurch and interfaith dialogue" that have emerged in Ukraine.

“We want to apply everything that has been achieved in the Orthodox-Catholic dialogue at the universal level at our local level in Ukraine,” the head of the UGCC explained.
