Ukrainian Churches in the Time of War

Round table discussion

Friday, March 4 18:00-19:30 Kyiv time [17:00-18:30 CET = 11 am EST]

The war in Ukraine is heavily affecting the entire population of the country, churches included. We gathered an ecumenical cohort of representatives from Orthodox, Catholic and Protestant churches, as well as religious observers to examine how Ukrainian churches are reacting to the Russian military invasion and assisting the population. We will also examine the religious narratives being formulated and how religious organizations abroad can help in this critical moment.
