The Chair of Ukrainian Studies at the University of Ottawa cordially invites you to the 34th Annual Ivan Franko Memorial Lecture to be delivered by Nicholas Denysenko and entitled “The Orthodox Church in Ukraine: A Century of Separation.”

Nicholas Denysenko is a Professor of Theology and holds the Emil & Elfrieda Jochum University Chair at Valparaiso University (Indiana, US). A graduate of St. Vladimir’s Orthodox Theological Seminary (MDiv) and the Catholic University of America (PhD), he specializes in liturgical theology and Orthodox Christianity. He has been a deacon of the Orthodox Church in America since 2003.

The lecture will be based on his recent book, under the same title, that came out in late 2018 just as the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople issued a Tomos recognizing the Ukrainian Orthodox Church as autocephalous (independent of the Moscow-based Russian Orthodox Church) over the objection of the Russian government. The lecture will address the repeated attempts, over the past century, to establish an autocephalous Ukrainian church and adopting Ukrainian as the language of worship.

Since seating is limited, people interested in attending are encouraged to register by email (chairukr@gmail.com) as soon as possible. Registration is free.
