“Ukraine, Democratic Revolution, and the Challenges of a Catholic University” – Nanovic Forum with Archbishop Borys Gudziak

Archbishop Borys Gudziak, President of the Ukrainian Catholic University in Lviv and a leader of the Ukrainian Catholic Church, was invited to give the 2016 Keeley Vatican Lecture. He delivered a lecture entitled “Ukraine, Democratic Revolution, and the Challenges of a Catholic University.” Gudziak emerged as a prominent leader in higher education in Ukraine following the end of the communist regime.

In 2013, Pope Benedict XVI elevated Bishop Gudziak to the Paris Eparchy of Saint Volodymyr the Great, the territorial diocese for the Ukrainian Catholic Church in France, Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg, and Switzerland. The Ukrainian Catholic Church is a Byzantine Rite Eastern Catholic Church in full communion with the Holy See.

The Keeley Vatican Lecture was established by the generosity of Terrence R. Keeley (‘81) to bring distinguished representatives from the Vatican to explore questions involving Notre Dame’s Catholic mission. This event was recorded on November 1, 2016.
