The Board’s governing body, composed of Knight Brothers Andriy Skuba, Bohdan Hirnyi, Anatoliy Pokotiuk, Andriy Cheverda, and Roman Dyakovych, was also approved.

“New brother knights have enlarged our parish — men of faith, prayer, and work! As of today, our parish community of the Knights of Columbus in Ukraine has 23 members, meaning that another Knights of Columbus council has appeared on the map of world communities. The council will bear the name of a humble and holy priest, the martyr Omelyan Kovch. Thank you to our men for their dignified service to God and Ukraine. Thank you to Mr. Petro Galuga for your trust and support!” Fr. Andriy Bodnaruk wrote on social media.
