For all of July, students of the Master’s Program in Ecumenical Studies were volunteers at Notre Dame de La Salette, which is located in the highest region of the French Alps. They participated in a variety of tasks, helping to receive pilgrims in the Marian sanctuary. Besides Ukrainians, there were also Russians, Belarusians, Poles, Romanians, and Hungarians there. Such national diversity created a congenial multiconfessional and international atmosphere.

From July 26-30, students took part in the fourth annual international conference “Paths of Reconciliation in Europe.” This year, its main theme was “Hungary and its neighbors.” This event gave young people the opportunity to better acquaint themselves with the history, culture, and traditions of Hungarians.
