Bishop Mykhaylo Bubniy CSsR took charge as the administrator of the Crimea Exarchate. The ceremony of enthronement of Bishop Mykhaylo held in Odessa, in the Roman Catholic Cathedral of St. Clement.
The Head of the Church of Byzantine rite said that the liturgical calendar of the Byzantine rite begins a new period of the liturgical year along with the enthronement. On the Lazarus Saturday the church began the Lenten Season. It starts with a new time and ends up with the Easter mystery – the mystery of the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.
“Today a new period of the liturgical year, our Odessa and Crimea Exarchate begin a new period of his life, his history. Today the Church is sending you a new bishop”- Primate appealed to the clergy and faithful of the Exarchate of Odessa.
Patriarch Sviatoslav reminded people that the bishop – is the one who animates the Church in the name of Jesus Christ. Bishop – is the one that carries a fullness of sacramental life of the Church.
