The Ukrainian presence is the result of an invitation extended to the K. of C. by Cardinal Lubomyr in his homily at the 2005 Supreme Convention in Chicago.
This year His Beatitude Sviatoslav extended his gratitude during a video greeting to the convention for the establishment of the Knights of Columbus in Ukraine.
