Volhynia, Ukraine

I was invited by another photographer friend to visit the Volhynia, Ukraine to see the work that Father Andrew Kwiczala started work in Volhynia in 2001. He is a preacher of two parishes, in Manevychi and Lyubeshiv. His focus is taking care of the elderly and isolated people and orphans. He also is working towards renovating the churches in both parishes. Asked why he became priest he answered ” I always wanted to be a doctor of body and soul”. Why Volhynia Ukraine? He stated he was lead by intuition and the blood of his own ancestors. There is only one sentence to describe Father Andrew, as he put it: “The quantity of his kilograms equate quantity of his goodness”.
