Church leaders from Ukraine spent two weeks at the Kartause for this year’s intensive English course, admirably speaking only English in order to learn the language faster. From September 15-29, LCI offered extra classes and activities for the twelve participants, whose responsibilities in their home dioceses ranged from finance to family life to pastoral ministry. Beyond gaining a stronger command of English, what one participant, Fr. Ivan Sokhan, especially appreciated was the experience of praying with the Franciscan University students at Mass and at an evening prayer meeting with Adoration. The powerful experience has motivated him to begin something similar with youth in Kiev, the capital of Ukraine and his home city. Thus spreads the Joy of the Gospel!
