Several politicians have visited the Ukrainian Catholic Cathedral in London to celebrate world Refugee day.
Welcomed by Rt Rev Kenneth Nowakowski, the US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and the UK Foreign Secretary James Cleverly met with staff and volunteers at the Ukrainian Welcome Centre, which is part of the cathedral.
They also took the opportunity to speak with some of the recently arrived Ukrainian citizens who are attending English language classes offered by the centre, among the many other services provided.
The Ukrainian Welcome Centre, a joint effort between the Ukrainian Catholic Eparchy and the Association of Ukrainians in Great Britain, and provides essential information and support to Ukrainian nationals who have been displaced by the conflict in Ukraine.
King Charles opened the centre last December alongside Ukraine's First Lady, Mrs Olena Zalenska.
A Monthly Gift Of $11 Makes A World Of Difference
In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.
Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.
For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.
Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
