Caroling for Orthodox Christmas

Father Momotyuk Nazarii (in black) goes Christmas caroling with members of his congregation to celebrate Ukrainian Orthodox Christmas. The group spent two days going door to door through Sukachi and Novo Ladizhichi villages, singing, offering blessings, and collecting donations for the church.

Nazarii is the village priest at the church in Novo Ladizhichi, Ukraine, which was built in 1987 to house evacuees from the original village of Ladizhichi following the 1986 Chernobyl accident. When people donated candy and fruit, the carolers redistributed it to children and elderly residents.
