The blessing of Pope Francis

The Leader of our community Oksana Magura attended an meeting with Pope Francis, which took place in April this year with representatives of L'Arche Communities around the world.

The meeting with the Pope was in a special way touching and warm. “Quiet tenderness, love and presence with each person were felt during the meeting” – Oksana Magura shared her impressions.

When Pope Francis learned that Oksana is a representative of L'Arche in Ukraine, he shook her hand and said Christian greeting in pure Ukrainian language: “Glory to Jesus Christ!”.

The Pope gave his blessing to all members of the community “L'Arche-Kovcheh” in Ukraine, as well as their families and relatives.
