In context of the ongoing war in Ukraine, the Conference of European Churches (CEC) will hold a panel titled “From war towards lasting peace: Through justice and solidarity” on 6 October 2023 in Lviv, Ukraine. The hybrid event will be held 14.00 – 15.30 (CEST) and 15.00 – 16.30 (EEST). The registrations are open.
CEC is organising the panel together with the Institute of Ecumenical Studies of the Ukrainian Catholic University and the International Forum 16th Ecumenical Social Week.
The moderator of the panel will be Dr Orysya Hachko Bila from the Ukrainian Catholic University, and the panellists include Metropolitan Yevstratiy of Bila Tserkva, Deputy Head of the Department for External Church Relations of the Orthodox Church of Ukraine, Bishop Sándor Zán-Fábián from the Reformed Church in Transcarpathia, Bishop Pavlo Schwartz, from the German Evangelical Lutheran Church in Ukraine, Professor Volodymyr Bureha from the Ukrainian Orthodox Church and Ms Helga Dyatlik, Associate Regional Director for Eastern Europe and Central Asia, Overseas Council - United World Mission.
The panellists will speak about the conditions for an enduring just peace in Ukraine, churches addressing the underlying causes of war, and the role of churches in preparing a peace process. They will also reflect on the role of ecumenical and international organisations.
The panel is part of CEC’s Pathways to Peace initiative, focusing on Ukraine, promoting justice, reconciliation and peace. Through this initiative, the European church-fellowship engages in dialogue with European Institutions, addressing crucial political concerns. Pathways to Peace also advocates for the protection of destroyed religious sites in Ukraine.
