24 November 2015New York, NY (UCCA) - On Saturday, November 21, 2015, hundreds of Ukrainians, friends and supporters gathered at Manhattan’s iconic St. Patrick’s Cathedral for an ecumenical requiem service and commemorative program dedicated to the memory of Ukraine’s Holodomor, Stalin's Famine Genocide of 7-10 million Ukrainians in 1932-33. As co-organized by the Ukrainian Congress Committee of America (UCCA), the largest representation of Ukrainians in America, this annual commemoration regularly attracts hundreds of attendees from across the tri-state metropolitan area, and this year was no exception. Even following the massive gathering in Washington, DC on November 7, when the National Ukrainian Genocide Memorial was dedicated in the presence of several thousand people, this year’s annual program at St. Patrick’s Cathedral still drew buses from communities in Hartford, CT, Whippany, NJ, as well as hundreds of others solemn churchgoers.
