In Prayer and Solidarity with Ukraine: Stay up to date about UCU’s response to the war in Ukraine

Located in Western Ukraine, Ukrainian Catholic University (UCU) is the first Catholic university on the vast territory of the former Soviet Union. The university is open to members of all religious denominations and is guided by Western and Catholic principles of ethics, compassion, and transparency. Since the start of the unjustified Russian invasion, UCU students have continued their studies and with their service learning education bravely support humanitarian efforts in Ukraine.

Through its fundraising activities in the United States, UCU Foundation, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, assists UCU in meeting its educational and financial challenges and gives U.S. donors a secure way to support UCU.

“I see Ukrainians giving their rooms and houses to those who have lost their homes, such as here at Ukrainian Catholic University… I see people who are patriots. I see Ukrainians who do not allow evil to say the last word. Life will overcome darkness… There is no depression in Ukraine, there is hope.”

Cardinal Timothy Dolan

Archbishop of New York

Timothy Snyder, Professor of History at Yale University

“The Ukraine that we can see today – the Ukraine that is resisting this horrible genocidal invasion is a Ukraine of civil society. And for me, one of the most beautiful examples of civil society in Ukraine is the one we are all here to support – Ukrainian Catholic University.”

“UCU is a bastion of Christian education and research in many different branches of knowledge. Young minds educated there have the opportunity to discover and discern ‘the way, the truth, and the life.’ These men and women will graduate and become the builders, the evangelizers, and the leaders of Ukraine.”
