During his visit to Ivano-Frankivsk on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the Archdiocese, UGCC Patriarch Sviatoslav Shevchuk visited the National Technical University of Oil and Gas. He was given an introductory tour of museums, scientific laboratories, meetings with scientists, students, and met with talented young people.

His Beatitude Sviatoslav awarded the winners of the 11th All-Ukrainian Environmental Competition of the UGCC Ecology Bureau "Responsibility for Creation" at the New Energy University Research Campus. He thanked the contestants and wished them good prospects for personal growth.

"Each competition has its own special features, but the competition in which you participated raises awareness and gives knowledge," the head of the UGCC stressed.

The winners of the contest received certificates and gifts in the following categories: "Poem", "Fairy Tale", "Prayer", "Drawing", "Video". Also, the head of the Department of pastoral care of sports of the UGCC, father Oleg Kobel, won the nomination "Sermon". The head of the UGCC, presenting the award to the cleric, joked: "I never thought that I would present a certificate for preaching."

In the scientific town "New Energy" Patriarch Svyatoslav was shown interesting things that illustrate various physical phenomena.

And the Geological Museum of the university received from his hands a valuable gift – an icon of the Cherub Angel, made by a mosaic of ten different types of minerals collected on five continents of the globe. The author of the work is Fr Yevhen Andrukhiv, chairman of the commission of sacred art of the Archdiocese of Ivano-Frankivsk of the UGCC. "Let it be a symbol of gratitude to your university, its teachers, and students for taking care of God's creation – the environment — today," the Patriarch stressed.

The head of the UGCC received oil as a symbol of the University and a symbolic mineral as a gift from the University of Oil and Gas
