Schedule of Easter services of OCU and UGCC

This is the third Easter that Ukrainians will celebrate in the midst of a full-scale war that the aggressor country Russia has unleashed against our country. Therefore, not all believers have the opportunity to attend the service. Instead, you can take part in it online.

This year, the bright holiday of the Resurrection fell on May 5. The Orthodox Church of Ukraine (OCU) and the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church (UGCC) have already decided on the time of the Easter liturgies. Their online broadcasts will also be available.

The Orthodox Church of Ukraine holds services at St. Michael's Golden-Domed Cathedral in Kyiv throughout Holy Week.
