Bishop Michael of Comana, Exarch of the Phanar in Ukraine, commented on the possibility of joint celebration of Easter by Catholics and Orthodox Christians at a meeting with seminarians of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church. The information was published on the website of the Kiev Tridentine Seminary of the UGCC.

According to the exarch, for such joint celebration, "it is necessary, first of all, to prepare the church community, since there is a need for understanding both among laypeople and clergy, therefore there is a need for awareness-raising on ecumenism."

The bishop believes that "celebrating the greatest Christian feast, the Resurrection of Christ together, can be another step towards finding ways to restore unity."
