Doves of Peace for Ukraine

On Sunday, April 17, 2016 at 3pm a Commemorative Concert and Prayer Service was held at the Ukrainian Catholic Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, Philadelphia, PA for the 30th Anniversary of the Chornobyl Disaster.
After the Commemorative Concert and Prayer Service, the faithful gathered outside by the Cathedral Bell Tower where "The Grace" Choir of the Ukrainian Baptist Church led everyone in singing "Боже Великий Єдиний" and the Ukrainian National Anthem as approximately a dozen doves were released for Peace in Ukraine. After the doves were released, a group photo was taken by the bell tower with performers from the concert, members of the Ukrainian Youth Organizations Plast and SUM, Ukrainian Children's Choir "Soloveiky", Ulana Mazurkevich of the Ukrainian Community Committee of Philadelphia, Metropolitan-Archbishop Stefan Soroka, Metropolitan of Ukrainian Catholics in the USA, and His Excellency Valeriy Chaly, Ambassador of Ukraine to the USA.
