Ladies and Gentlemen!

The Cultural Center Anne of Kyiv and Sts. Borys and Hlib Church in France are beginning a new stage of their development. On their behalf we would like to hereby invite you to share this chosen path with them.

Anne of Kyiv (Anna Yaroslavna) was a wise queen and a loving mother. During her regency she established several abbeys, where for centuries her successors found peace and spiritual guidance. In 1060, Anne of Kyiv founded St. Vincent Abbey in the city of Senlis near Paris.

In 2013, Ukrainians from all over the world made a common effort and acquired a historic building in the city of Senlis. This was the beginning of the Cultural Center Anne of Kyiv and Sts. Borys and Hlib Church in France. These places honor Anne of Kyiv and stand as a reminder of the strong connection between our two European nations, Ukraine and France.

The First Charity Dinner “Anne of Kyiv. New Millennium” is your opportunity to join our efforts to upraise a strong center of Ukrainian culture and diplomacy at the very heart of Europe.

Our goal is to renovate the historic building in the city of Senlis, to unite communities of Ukrainians, both in the country and beyond its borders, to save our European legacy and to share it with the world.

At the Charity Dinner, you will be able to share a moment with the Honorary Committee and to take part in the charity auction. We invite you to behold the story of Anne of Kyiv in the circle of like-minded friends, to lay the foundation for the protection and spread of our common history and culture.
