Roman and Maria Wynnyckyj Research and Teaching Fellowship Awarded to Fr. Andrew Onuferko

The Metropolitan Andrey Sheptytsky Institute of Eastern Christian Studies is pleased to announce that the “Roman and Maria Wynnyckyj Research and Teaching Fellowship” has been awarded for a three-year term to Father Andrew T. Onuferko, S.Th.D.

Father Andrew is a Ukrainian-Catholic priest of the Toronto Eparchy. Trained in Biblical theology, he earned his doctorate at the Pontificia Università Urbaniana in Byzantine lectionary studies. This postdoctoral fellowship will provide Father Andrew with the opportunity to continue his research in areas of Eastern Christian Theological Studies with particular relevance to the Ukrainian Church, its history and the use of Scripture in its liturgical life. We look forward to his sharing of the results of these academic pursuits through lectures, workshops, conferences and publications.

We welcome Father Andrew in his new role in the Sheptytsky Institute and wish him well as he contributes to the store of knowledge of Eastern Christianity.
