Metropolitan Andrey Sheptycky Institute (MASI)

The Metropolitan Andrey Sheptytsky Institute of Eastern Christian Studies is a centre of higher learning, research, ecumenical understanding and prayer. Founded at Catholic Theological Union in Chicago in 1986, the Institute came under the patronage of the Ukrainian Catholic Bishops of Canada in 1989, and in 1990 became a part of Saint Paul University in Ottawa. As an academic unit of the Faculty of Theology, the Sheptytsky Institute offers accredited undergraduate and graduate degree programs to both men and women - laity, religious and clergy. As a centre of higher learning, the Institute is committed to quality education in Eastern Christian Theology and related disciplines, both at Saint Paul University in Ottawa, as well as in its outreach programs. As a centre of research, the Institute is committed to scholarship and publication in the various fields of Eastern Christian Studies, cooperating with other educational Institutions, learned societies and individual scholars. As a centre of ecumenical understanding, the Institute is committed to fostering respectful and fruitful encounter among the various Eastern Christian Churches (Orthodox and Catholic) and between Eastern and Western Christians. As a centre of prayer, the Institute is dedicated to integrating academic study and worship of the Triune God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. In dialogue with contemporary societies the Institute hopes to communicate the power of Christian Faith and living Tradition, so that all may share in the very life of God.
