Borys GudziakArcheparchy of Philadelphia; Metropolitan of the Ukrainian Catholic Church in the USA

Registration required. Open only to current students at the Univesity of Chicago. Registration is capped at 20. This event will be held at the Lumen Christi Woodlawn Residence for Graduate Students. 

Join us for a special evening program for students with Metropolitan Borys Gudziak.

Metropolitan Borys is the head of the Ukrainian Catholic Church in the United States. He is most known his work with the Ukrainian Catholic University in Lviv. After his PhD at Harvard University, he moved to post-Soviet Ukraine in the 1990’s and helped found--and then lead--the only Catholic University between Poland and Japan. He is currently the chair for the USCCB committee on domestic justice and human development.

The evening will begin at 6 p.m., just after a 5 p.m. Mass at Calvert House, followed by a simple soup supper. Metropolitan Borys will offer some informal remarks and take questions. This is an excellent opportunity to speak with an intelligent, international church leader in an intimate setting. Talk to him about best spiritual practices during Lent, the war in Ukraine, or his favorite gelato flavor in Rome. He will have incisive opinions about all of the above and more. This will be a great way to start this penitential season.
