Opening of Kovcheh Rehabilitation Center – Community in Dialogue
The blessing of a new house of the Community in Dialogue – Communita in dialogo took place on October 7, 2017 in Fedorivka, Kyiv region. Guests and friends from all over Ukraine assembled at the blessing site. What a magnificent view!!! Forests, forests, forests… one could smell pines there… nature inspired and encouraged inner silence. God Himself granted that place to the guys taking the program there. A new group of rehabilitants chose an interesting title for the Center – Kovcheh, meaning the Ark. On the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary, His Eminence, Bishop Stanislav Shyrokoradiuk blessed the new house.
In a sermon delivered by the bishop, a question was posed: “Why are there happy people and those who are always sad?” Are some people luckier while others are less so? For certain, we cannot say that God granted more to some people and gave nothing to others. It is just that there are people choosing happiness for one hour or one day to escape from something… However, there are people who choose long-time happiness. This facility – the Rehabilitation Center is actually the place where people striving to live happily all their life assemble. May they firmly and faithfully achieve their ambition – happiness for themselves and their families!
