During the Inter-eparchial Clergy Conference for the four Ukrainian Catholic eparchies of the United States, in Chicago October 20-23, 2015, several of the Sheptytsky Institute’s priest alumni decided to hold a brief impromptu reunion with their professor, Fr. Andriy Chirovsky and to fix the moment in history by posing together for a photograph. While certainly not an exhaustive list of MASI alumni-priests serving in the various eparchies of the United States, the photo above does offer an interesting cross section. Fr. Ivan Chirovsky and Fr. Theodore Wroblicky studied at the Sheptytsky Institute before it moved to Ottawa in 1990. Others graduated much more recently. Together, three decades of Sheptytsky Institute work are represented even in this small gathering. From left to right: Fr. Alex Wroblicky, Fr. Jason Charon, Fr. Ivan Chirovsky, Fr.
