The Institute of Marriage and Family Life of the Ukrainian Catholic University was founded in 1997. The immoral aftermath of the Soviet regime has caused great problems for traditional marriage and family life in Ukraine. This includes a high abortion rate, the use of artificial contraceptives, and a high divorce rate.
Among its activities, the institute is involved in:
- Pro life activities, including praying and counseling at abortion clinics
- Teaching Natural Family Planning to married couples
- Offering classes to help families resolve crises
- Preparing couples for the birth of a child
- Research in the field
