Invitation to the Conversation

with Bishop Bryan Bayda, CSsR

“Church as an Essential Service”

 • A podcast on Anchor

Church as an Essential Service»»

Welcome to the Conversation with Bishop Bryan Bayda, CSsR, of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church. During the COVID-19 pandemic secular authorities have decreed that Church attendance is not an Essential Service. Bishop Bryan Bayda challenges this notion by claiming that Church provides individuals with the spiritual supports they need during times of stress. Following Bishop Bryan’s comments we hear from Fr. Warren Dungen and Fr. Michael Hayes, both priests in the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, who address the issue of administering the sacraments in a time of pandemic.


The Conversation takes place every Thursday night as a Zoom call at 7pm (EST); to join the Zoom call, or ask Bishop Bryan a question, send me, Subdeacon Shawn Goldman, an email at:
