To His Beatitude, Metropolitan Stephan
Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church in the USA

Your Beatitude,

In the name of all our jurisdiction, I offer you our condolences for the terrible act which took place yesterday and which stained with blood, this country in which you represent our Church.

We assure you of all our prayers as well as all the American people. We immediately gave instruction to all the priests to celebrate liturgies during the whole week, in all the parishes of the jurisdiction. In these days of darkness, receive your Beatitude, our respectful greetings and our affectionate thoughts.

In the Union of Prayer,


Archevêque de Toulon
Exarque de France-Espagne-Italie
