The Catholic University of America mourns the passing of Cardinal Lubomyr Husar, major archbishop of Kyiv-Halyč, Ukraine, and retired head of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, who died June 1, 2017, at the age of 84. Cardinal Husar was a University alumnus and the recipient of an honorary degree in 2007.

Catholic University bestowed upon Cardinal Husar the Doctor of Humane Letters, honoris causa, describing him as “an example to all Christians called to place their trust in the Lord.”

“We mourn the passing of Cardinal Husar, a loyal son of the Church and a friend of Catholic University,” said President John Garvey. “We will remember him for his ecumenical work with the Orthodox churches and other Christian and non-Christian groups and for his concern for the world’s marginalized.”.
