Believers of the Orthodox and Greek Catholic Churches prepare to celebrate Christmas. By the long-lasting tradition, they mark the Christmas Eve on January 6, and the Christmas itself is celebrated on January 7.

People in Kyiv already prepare to celebrate; for example, Greek Catholics gathered for pre-Christmas mass, which was held in the shrine of Resurrection in Kyiv on early January 6.

The Christmas mass for Greek Catholics will begin in the shrine of Resurrection at midnight January 7; the Head of Ukraine’s Greek Catholic Church Svyatoslav Shevchuk will conduct the mass.
