      Patriarch of Jerusalem Presents Highest Award of His Church to
      Archbishop of UOC-MP
      30 November 2012

      Patriarch Theophilus III of Jerusalem awarded Archbishop Oleksandr
      (Drabynko) of Pereiaslav-Khmelnytskyi and Vyshneve of the Ukrainian
      Orthodox Church-Moscow Patriarchate with the highest award of the
      Jerusalem Orthodox Church, the Holy Cross of the Brotherhood of the Holy
      Sepulchre with the golden crown.

      The award was presented on 28 November, during a visit of a delegation
      of UOC-MP to the Holy Land to bring back the Shroud of the Holy Virgin
      which stayed in Ukraine from 19 September to 26 November.

      “We present this cross to strengthen and help Archbishop Oleksandr to
      continue to serve with the same zeal in God and to fulfill his Church
      duties for the good of the Ecumenical Church and Ukrainian nation,” said
      Patriarch Theophilus III.

      “We would like to honour Archbishop Oleksandr and bless the whole
      Ukrainian nation, the Church of Ukraine and brother in Christ, blessed
      Metropolitan Volodymyr of Kyiv and All Ukraine,” added the patriarch. So
      reported the web site of UOC-MP.
