During the gala dinner of the 27th General Assembly of FIUC, our president, Isabel Capeloa Gil, awarded three Ex Corde Ecclesiae medals. The first to Fr. William P. Leahy, President of Boston College, which hosted the General Assembly, the second to Chantal Beauvais, President of Saint Paul University (Ottawa) and former Vice-President of the Federation and the last to Mr. Loïc Roche, responsible for the communication and training department of the Federation, who this year celebrates his 23 years of presence in our institution
The President of the Federation, re-elected the same afternoon by acclamation, also presented the Sciat Vt Serviat award to the Ukrainian Catholic University (UCU). He was received by Archbishop Borys Gudziak, former Rector of this university and former member of the FIUC Board of Directors. With this symbolic gesture, our Federation wanted to renew all its support and solidarity with our colleagues of the UCU and the Ukrainian people living an unjust war led by Russia.
After this evening full of emotion, the last day of our Assembly ended with the speech of our President who outlined the new mandate of the Board of Directors (2022-2025) and invited us to project ourselves into the activities and celebrations that will punctuate the centenary year of the Federation: 2024.
These celebrations will conclude with the 28th IFCU General Assembly, which will be hosted in Guadalajara, Mexico, by the Universidad del Valle de Atemajac (UNIVA).
On behalf of the IFCU President, Isabel Capeloa Gil, and the Board of Administration, we would like to warmly thank the more than 200 participants in this Assembly as well as our partners: Aléas, Altissia and uPlanner without whom this event would not have been such a success.
A big thank you to Boston College and its teams for their commitment to this assembly.
See you in Guadalajara in 2025!
