Date of Episcopal Ordination of Bishop-Elect Andriy Rabiy Announced

Metropolitan-Archbishop Stefan Soroka of the Ukrainian Catholic Archeparchy of Philadelphia is pleased to announce that our newly nominated Auxiliary Bishop Andriy Rabiy will be ordained by His Beatitude Sviatoslav Shevchuk during the Opening Hierarchical Divine Liturgy for the Synod of Bishops to take place on Sunday, September 3rd, 2017 in St. George Ukrainian Catholic Cathedral in Lviv, Ukraine at 11 a.m. Co-consecrators will be Archbishop Stefan Soroka, Metropolitan of Philadelphia and Bishop David Motiuk, Eparch of Edmonton Eparchy.

Our Patriarch generously responded to the suggestion to conduct the episcopal ordination in the city and country of the Bishop-Elect’s native birth, where his parents, brother and family reside. It highlights his being rooted strongly in the cultures and traditions of both Ukraine and USA., a special gift for our Ukrainian Catholic Church. The newly ordained Bishop Andriy will then participate in his first meeting of the Synod of Bishops.

The newly ordained Bishop Andriy Rabiy will be formally welcomed in the Ukrainian Catholic Metropolia of Philadelphia with his celebrating a Hierarchical Divine Liturgy in the Ukrainian Catholic Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Philadelphia on Sunday, September 24th, 2017 at 3 p.m., followed by a Formal Reception in the Cathedral Hall.

Please pray for our Bishop-Elect Andriy as God’s Grace enables him to fulfill his episcopal ministry.
