Apostolic Nuncio to Ukraine Visits Ukrainian Catholic University
On February 7, Apostolic Nuncio to Ukraine, Archbishop Thomas Edward Gullickson, visited the Ukrainian Catholic University as part of his trip to Lviv.
He was acquainted with the history and activities of the institution, visited the site of the construction of the new university campus, met with the administration of the university and teachers of the Philosophy and Theology Faculty.
“Before coming here, I read a lot about the activity of UCU on its website, but my personal acquaintance exceeded my expectations. In my opinion, UCU faces a lot of challenges because it is the only Catholic university in the post-Communist space, and students at this school must be courageous and purposefully follow a path that perhaps no one has taken before,” noted the Apostolic Nuncio after the visit.
The Nuncio is an active blogger and has a blog Deo Volente Ex Animo, takes interest in modern communications and is one of the registered users of RISU.
“I have recently given a lecture for the students of the Kyiv Mohyla Academy and mentioned RISU. In my opinion, it is one of the best portals writing about religion in Ukraine. I am also fascinated by the activity of the Catholic Media Center in Kyiv,” said Archbishop Gullickson in a brief conversation with RISU Director Taras Antoshevskyi and Deputy Director on Development Mariana Karapinka.
