Dear friends,As I wrote in the foreword to
The Newman Guide toChoosing a Catholic College
, presumably familieschoose a Catholic education because they areseeking someplace that will educate the mind, bodyand soul by seeking truth in the light of faith.But for too long Catholics have been sending their sons and daughters, nieces and nephews, grand-sons and granddaughters to Catholic colleges thatsell themselves as offering a Catholic experience,but for all intents and purposes what they are actu-ally doing is very much secular.As they say in Brooklyn, the devil is in the details.This is why I
to tell parents that they would bebetter off sending their children to secular collegesthat have a good Catholic campus ministry rather than risk exposing them to dissent and the kind of debauchery that occurs on too many Catholic cam-puses these days.But my advice to them has changed.
I now tell parents that they should send their children to one of the growing number of authentic and faithful Catholic colleges
, thoserecommended at TheNewmanGuide.com, which willprovide a student with a true Catholic education.You can’t get anything close to this kind of educa-tion at a state university.
You will also not nd the degree of moral decadence
that pervades our culture at these faithful Catholiccolleges.Please spread the word to your family and friendsabout the tremendous opportunities for faithfulCatholic education available to our youth.
