How were we born?

In 2009, His Beatitude Liubomyr, the Major Archbishop of Kyiv-Galicia, found the Patriarchal Pilgrimage Center of the UGCC by his Decree. It was created under the Patriarchal Curia of the UGCC. Instead, in 2013, the Father and Head of the Ukrainian Greek-Catholic Church, His Beatitude Sviatoslav addressed the pilgrims and gave his blessing to the Patriarchal Pilgrimage Center to conduct pilgrimages in our Church.

Who are we?

For 15 years, the Patriarchal Pilgrimage Center of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church (UGCC) has been bringing people closer to God through spiritual journeys and pilgrimages around Ukraine and around the world. The goal of our activity is to develop the pilgrimage movement in Ukraine, to introduce the Ukrainians and all those who wish to with the spiritual shrines of the world, and to assist in the development of social initiatives in the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church.
