First time in 1500 years.

Opening of the Ukrainian-speaking cell in Athos. This is an incredible event.

Mount Athos is a place of pilgrimage for a huge number of people at all times. Our goal in 2023 is to hold the first ever liturgy in the Ukrainian language on Mount Athos in a cell (a place for monks and parishioners).

How did it turn out?

By decision of the elders of St. Pantokrator Monastery, the cell of St. Archangels (Falacru), founded in the 10th century.

After all, all the lands on Mount Athos belong to 20 monasteries and no one has the right to build without the permission of the monasteries.
