Glory be to Jesus Christ!

Beloved in Christ,

I sincerely greet all of you from the Cathedral of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul in Melbourne. Today my heart is filled with joy, because this Sunday our Churches in Victoria and in New South Wales are opening. I invite all our parishioners to return to our churches after a few months of lockdown and thank God for his incredible care for us.

The Eparchy of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul plans to hold a Sobor this year on “Emigration, Settlement and Global Unity of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church.”

The church proposes to conduct a survey so that it can better minister to its faithful. In order for this Sobor to renew our parishes, we ask you to find 5 minutes of your time to fill in the QUESTIONNAIRE (, which has 3 questions about your parish and 3 questions about your Eparchy. Each question has 9 to 15 answers. Each answer should be graded from 1 to 5. If anyone wishes, you can also add your comments in the space provided.

When you access the Questionnaire, please choose an age category, choose a country or state of residence and, if desired, choose the location of your parish. After answering all the questions, click “SUBMIT” on the last page and if you wish you can receive a copy of your Questionnaire to your email.

Thank you in advance for responding to the call to fill out the Survey.

May God abundantly bless you and your families!

+ Bishop Mykola Bychok CSsR

Eparch of Melbourne
