Ukrainian Couple Stays Connected Through Faith

Like so many spouses from Ukraine, Petro and Oksana Galuga do not know when they will see each other again. They left their home in Kyiv on Feb. 24, as soon as Russia’s attacks began, and traveled together to Lviv, more than 500 km (300 miles) to the west. Oksana, who has struggled with health issues, continued to Warsaw, Poland, where the older of their two sons has been studying for several years. Meanwhile, Petro, the state secretary of the Knights of Columbus in Ukraine, has been helping to coordinate the Order’s humanitarian work while serving with State Deputy Yuriy Maletskiy on the Anti-Crisis Committee formed by the Archdiocese of Lviv. They reflect on their marriage, their months apart, and their response to the crisis in their homeland.
