Pilgrimage of the Mukachevo Eparchy faithful to the Vatican

Over 400 pilgrims from Transcarpathia visited Rome and Vatican City in Italy from December 11 - 18, 2011. In 2011, our Mukachevo Eparchy celebrated a chain of jubilees related to the Blessed Martyr Theodore Romzha: the 100th year of his birth; the 75th year of his priestly ordination and the 10th year of his beatification. For that reason among many others, a pilgrimage to Rome was planned, where also 75 years ago Blessed Theodore was ordained as a priest. And God made it happen so that exactly this year, in 2011, and not in 2012 as was earlier planned, the Christmas tree for Saint Peter's Square was chosen from Theodore’s native Transcarpathia.

Four Hundred Years Of The Catholic Education

This is the theme of an international conference which took place from February 28th till March 1st and was organized by the Mukachevo Greek-Catholic Eparchy.

This event was set in the Uzhhorod Theological Academy of the Blessed Theodore Romzha with the aim to emphasize the determinant role of the Catholic Church  in the intellectual formation on the territory of Mukachevo Eparchy and first of all in Uzhhorod for centuries.

The High School led by Jesuits first risen in Humenne started in Uzhhorod back in the 40s of the XVII century. Founded as a theological school in Mukachevo, the Seminary then was transferred to Uzhhorod castle in 1778. In addition, it is worth to notice that Jesuit College, High School, Greek-Catholic Seminary of Three Hierarchs, Seminary for the Cantors and Teachers were the only schools for higher education till the mid-twentieth century. These educational institutions were preparing the personnel for the formative work in the elementary and middle schools which provided basic education to the inhabitants of the region. Moreover, the Uzhhorod Theological Academy of the Blessed Theodore Romzha is one of the oldest in Ukraine.

The scholars from Ukraine, Italy, Slovakia, Poland and Hungary took part in the conference. Following are some of the subjects that were treated during the conference: “The Autonomy of the Science and the Attempts to Ideologize the Sciences”, “Methodology of the Historical Sciences and Some Methodological Malpractice”, “The University of  Trnava and its influence on the formation of clergy of Mukachevo Eparchy”.

Special guest, such as Archbishop Cyril Vasyl, SJ, the Secretary of the Congregation for the Oriental Churches (Rome, Italy), the Eparchial Bishop of Mukachevo Milan Šašik CM, the rector of the Uzhhorod Theological Academy archimandrite Petro-Pavlo Beresh, PhD, as well as fr. Yuriy Oros and fr. Vasyl Pidhirskyy professors of the Theological Academy came to meet the journalists.

The talkers gave the presentation also of the current state of the catholic education in Mukachevo Eparchy on the press conference. Firstly, all the educational institutions were mentioned: Uzhhorod Greek-Catholic Academy with its 78 students, Cantor School, Catechetical Institute, Icon School, High School of  Oleksandr Stojka in Karachyn and three kindergartens. It is very few by comparison with the time before the liquidation. Unfortunately the high theological education is not recognized by the Ukrainian government. Moreover, as Bishop Milan states, the Church should have the possibility to found the schools with government funding. Today it is very important since the Church could take active part in this way in the formation of the youth.

The choir of the Blessed Theodore Romzha performed celebrating its 180th Anniversary on the occasion of the conference in the Uzhhorod Cathedral of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross on February 28th in the evening.
