On February 9, 2011, Metropolitan Hilarion of Volokolamsk, head of the Moscow Patriarchate’s department for external church relations, visited the Catholic University of America in Washington. He was welcomed by Cardinal Donald Wuerl, Archbishop of Washington, and University President John Garvey.

Metropolitan Hilarion addressed the faculty and students with a lecture on relationship between art and religious belief. After the lecture, he answered questions from the audience.

The DECR chairman gave the university an icon of Our Lady ‘Hodegetria’ as a token of his visit.

The Catholic University of America is one of the major universities in North America. Over seven thousand students study in it.
