On Sunday, November 12, a shelter for homeless located on Mazepa street in Lviv was blessed during a liturgy led by Archbishop of the RCC in Ukraine Mieczyslaw Mokrzycki, reports Zaxid.net.

 

In this shelter 40 homeless men can live, 300 people can be served meals every day and the shelter will provide for the creation of jobs for 15 asylum seekers.

 

“Establishment of the shelter arises from the great need to ensure basic living conditions and the functioning of the poor and homeless. The unit should provide comprehensive assistance to the homeless people, the Archdiocese of Lviv of the Roman Catholic Church notes.

 

The shelter is located on 48 Hetman Mazepa street near the church. This institution for caregivers and the poor will be patronized by the Congregation of the Brothers Albertinian in Lviv.

 

The press service of the Archdiocese of Lviv of the RCC noted that the monastic congregation of the Albertine brothers and sisters belongs to Franciscan congregations that are distinguished by love for poverty and serving the poor.

 

The first Albertine shelter in Lviv was organized in 1892. Before the end of the Second World War, the Albertine brothers and sisters conducted active social work among the poor and the disabled within the Archdiocese of Lviv. Now, at the invitation of Archbishop Mieczyslaw Mokrzycki, this community has resumed this work in Lviv region.

 

In addition to Lviv, the Albertinian Congregation works with the poor and unemployed in Zaporizhia, and the women's congregation in Ukraine has another community in the village of Plebanivka in Vinnytsia region.
