A Center for Interconfessional and Interreligious Dialogue to be opened in Lviv, Ukraine

2013-03-05 10:47:37

On May 6-7, 2013 an interfaith center Libertas will be inaugurated in Lviv, Ukraine.

The opening of a center coincides with the fact that this year Ukraine chairs the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE). It is expected that the inauguration ceremony will be commenced by Ukraine’s Ambassador to the Vatican, Tetiana Izhevska, who is also a Personal Representative of the Delegate to the OSCE on Combating Racism, Xenophobia and Discrimination, also focusing on Intolerance and Discrimination against Christians and Members of Other Religions.

The two keynote speakers are Most Reverend Charles Morerord, bishop of Fribourg, Lausanne and Geneva in Switzerland, and Dr. Anthony Cernera, President of the International Federation of Catholic Universities and President Emeritus of the Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, CT, U.S.A.

Bishop Morerord will be the main speaker during the interconfessional part of the inauguration. Author of many philosophical, theological and ecumenical works, Morerord has served as a dean and as rector at the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas (Angelicum) in Rome, and, among other positions in the Vatican, has held the position of Secretary General of the International Theological Commission for Catholic-Orthodox Dialogue. In November 2011 Pope Benedict XVI appointed Morerord to his present bishopric in Switzerland.

Dr. Anthony Cernera will deliver the talk for the interreligious part of the inaugural lecture. Cernera founded a center for Jewish-Christian dialogue in the U.S. and is one of the key players in the interfaith dialogue on an international level. 

Many guests, bishops, diplomats, representatives of Churches and religious organizations from Ukraine and abroad are expected to take part in the inauguration.

The full program of the inauguration will be released in March 2013 on the center’s web-site: www.libertas.infolviv.eu
