On Sunday, September 16, on artificial ground of "Spartak" stadium in the regional center a friendly mini-football match between teams of priests of Mukachevo-Uzhgorod Diocese of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church and representatives of regional media space took place.
The absolute majority of the journalist team were fans of fooball from the department of journalism of UzhNU.
The game was quite intense and rich in goals. The clerics much to the surprise of their opponents on the field, demonstrated the ability to skillfully control the ball, combine and realize goal moments.
So the final score was 4:7 in favor of priests.
However journalists did not look frustrated. They had a more than worthy opponent, who clearly showed: care of neighbors’ souls can and should be done with both a healthy body and a healthy spirit.
It is likely that it will soon be a rematch. The priests accepted the proposal of journalists to continue the discussion on the football field someday.
