Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
May God bless you! The annual collection for Catholic higher education will be conducted in all parishes of the Archdiocese this weekend. Bellarmine University, Catholic University of America and Spalding University will benefit from the proceeds of this collection.
These institutions strive to encourage persons of all ages to pursue excellence and to examine their values in the light of the Gospel and the common good. The ability to bring together faith and reason in a Catholic environment is especially important as we seek to go out and share the Gospel in today’s world.
Your help will allow many students to attend a Catholic university who otherwise might be deprived of this opportunity, and I invite you to support this vital educational mission of our Church.
These Catholic universities join me in expressing gratitude for your generosity.
Sincerely yours in our Lord,
Most Reverend Joseph E. Kurtz, D.D.
Archbishop of Louisville
