For decades the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church has been at the forefront of the struggles for independence and democratic civil society in Ukraine. In this lecture, Archbishop Borys Gudziak, the newly enthroned metropolitan archbishop of Philadelphia, examined the role of Catholic social thought in the engagement of the Ukrainian Catholic Church in public life in Ukraine and throughout the Ukrainian diaspora.
A native of Syracuse, New York, who previously served as bishop of the Ukrainian Catholic Eparchy in Paris, Archbishop Gudziak is the founder, long-time rector, and now president of Ukrainian Catholic University (UCU) in L’viv, Ukraine. This public lecture served as the culmination of a UCU delegation’s week-long visit to Georgetown University.
A reception followed the lecture.
