We remind that the church launched its webinars project on June 29.

Andriy Mykhaleyko, Ph.D.

It is possible to watch the first webinar at this reference: (37:05 minutes, 26 Mb). During the first webinar there were some technical difficulties which were corrected. In addition, a new server, which will be installed in the next few days, will further ensure the high quality of the web-seminars.

All the webinars will be archived - they will be published on the website and will be accessible to the public at any time. Any wishes regarding the organization or subject of the webinars we ask to express on the forum of the UGCC at this link:

The purpose of introducing webinars is to propagate the Gospel with the help of the newest technologies. The first webinar of the UGCC will begin the cycle of online seminars devoted to the history of the church. A series of webinars on moral theology is being prepared.


Background Information

A webinar is an online event where one or more speakers can hold on the Internet or a corporate network seminars, meetings, and conferences for groups ranging anywhere from a few to a few thousand people. Webinars can include voting sessions and questioning, providing complete cooperation between the audience and the leader. During the webinars the software allows participants to see and hear the speaker and allows him to ask questions in text form.

As Pope Benedict XVI noted in his message on the 44th World of Communications Day, "God's loving care for all people in Christ must be expressed in the digital world not simply as an artifact from the past, or a learned theory, but as something concrete, present and engaging. Our pastoral presence in that world must thus serve to show our contemporaries, especially the many people in our day who experience uncertainty and confusion, ‘that God is near; that in Christ we all belong to one another.'"
