06.05.13


hutornyj-2.jpgWe were very saddened to hear the news that the Rev Mykhaylo Hutornyj of the Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church (UAOC) passed away yesterday, Easter Sunday, aged 89. 

For many years he has been one of the UAOC’s leading clerics in this country whilst also dedicating his time and energy to serve the faithful of the UAOC in the Yorkshire area.

Fr. Hutornyj arrived in the UK in the late 1940’s having survived not only the horrors of the Second World War, but also the Holodomor of 1932-33, which he movingly spoke about in 2008 during the 75th anniversary commemoration held at Westminster Central Hall. 

A full obituary will appear in the next issue of Dumka.

Вічна Йому Пам'ять! Христос Воскрес!
