Catholic Studies is proud to present the fourth Annual Archbishop John J. Myers Lecture Series on Law, Society and Faith entitled “Rising from The Underground, The Ukrainian Catholic Church Reborn” by Rev. Dr. Mark M. Morozowich on Monday, October 16 at 3 p.m. in the Chancellor’s Suite.

In 1989, the largest Catholic persecuted church that existed underground received its freedom from the Soviet authorities. This lecture, by Fr. Mark Morozowich, will begin with an overview of the re-establishment of hierarchy, parishes, religious institutes, and Catholic educational structures. This is all considered in light of a completely new chapter in the life of this church born through the baptism of Kyivan-Rus in 988. It also develops the themeof the relationship of the Ukrainian Catholic Church with the broader Catholic Church.

All are welcome and admission is free. You canregister online at https://events.shu.edu/event/the-ukrainian-catholic-church-reborn/.
