On Friday October 14, 2022 the Feast of the Holy Protection by the old (Julian) reckoning, Fr Bohdan Prach, rector of the Ukrainian Catholic University, visited the Metropolitan Andrey Sheptytsky Institute and the Faculty of Theology at the University of St Michael’s College in the University of Toronto. Present at this meeting were the Institute’s Executive Director, Fr Alexander Laschuk, Fr Andrew Summerson, Professor of Greek Patristics in the Faculty, and Dr Jaroslaw Skira, Dean of Regis-St Michael’s. After a discussion regarding possibilities for collaboration between the two institutions, the group visited St Sophia’s Chapel in Elmsley Hall where the sixth hour was celebrated. Following this, Fr Prach joined in conversation about the current situation in Ukraine with a number of students from the Faculty of Theology as well as the wider University of Toronto community, including several exchange students who have recently come to Canada from Ukraine to continue their studies during the war of Russian Aggression.
