Forum 22-23: A One-Year Commemoration of Russia’s Full-Scale Invasion of Ukraine

The Nanovic Institute for European Studies, in collaboration with the Ukrainian Society of Notre Dame and exchange students from the Ukrainian Catholic University, marked “A One-Year Commemoration of Russia’s Full-Scale Invasion of Ukraine” on Thursday, February 23, 2023, in the Forum of Jenkins Nanovic Hall. A group of exchange students from Ukrainian Catholic University also shared stories of the early days of the war in February 2022 and their hopes for the future of their nation. 

At the end of the program, attendees were invited to participate in a candlelit prayer walk from Jenkins Nanovic Halls to the Grotto where they joined University President Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., for a Prayer Service for Peace in Ukraine.

This commemoration and the Prayer Service for Peace in Ukraine are part of the Notre Dame Forum and were made possible by the Office of the President and Campus Ministry.
