Graduate and Doctoral Study Courses to Be Opened at Ukrainian Catholic University
The head of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, Patriarch Sviatoslav Shevchuk, celebrated a liturgy at the Ukrainian Catholic University on February 2, the press service of UCU reported.
The primate addressed the theologians:“UCU has the best school of theology in the entire former Soviet Union. But there is temptation to evaluate the work of our theologians by what other people say about them. I want to thank those people who were courageous enough to devote their lives to theological studies. I also want to emphasize the importance of the existence of this university and of the theological school for our church. I encourage you with all the power of God’s Word to build our church and our society in the dimension, to which the Lord is calling us.”
The patriarch greeted guests from southern, central and eastern Ukraine, who are now enrolled in the program at the Institute of Leadership and Management of UCU. He also thanked the students, “who entrusted their lives and future in this university.”
According to Senior Vice Rector of UCU Taras Dobko, the Ukrainian Catholic University is to fulfill many tasks this year: to open a student collegium, complete the full cycle of theological education by opening a postgraduate course and institution of doctoral candidacy, to introduce new master's degree programs.
