Anticipating the one-year anniversary of the election of Pope Francis as the Bishop of Rome, Catholic leaders nationwide have reflect on his papacy thus far, noting his call for every Catholic to evangelize.
Liberals can't stand competition. From their comfortable lofts in ivy-covered towers, left-wing professors sneer at free-market philanthropists eager for a role in the support of higher education. Several disgruntled professors are hectoring the administrators of the Catholic University of America to send back generous donations of $1 million from the Charles Koch Foundation and $500,000 from the Busch Family Foundation. So far, the school is standing firm.
A series of high-profile scandals have forced leading university presidents — including Ohio State University's E. Gordon Gee and Florida Atlantic University's Mary Jane Saunders — to resign amid unprecedented scrutiny.
America's 77 million Catholics generally gave Pope Benedict XVI high marks, but his surprise decision to step down after just eight years comes as the U.S. church confronts a string of unanswered questions, on issues ranging from divisions with the Obama administration on birth control and gay marriage to political activism by U.S. nuns and the continuing fallout from the sexual-abuse scandals in dioceses across the country.
The company that makes "Girls Gone Wild" DVDs is seeking to overturn a verdict awarding nearly $6 million to a St. Louis-area woman who claims her bare breasts were recorded without permission.
Catholic University is allowed to segregate students' living quarters into same-sex dormitories, according to a ruling handed down Tuesday.
Some pro-abortion advocates seem positively outraged that Catholic colleges would defend their constitutional liberty to teach and uphold Catholic values. In that, they reveal that God, reason and the rule of law are of little importance to their narrow agenda.
A local law professor and legal activist is challenging Catholic University's much-touted plans to begin converting to all-male and all-female dorms starting this fall, saying the plan violates city statutes forbidding sex discrimination.
President John Garvey of the Catholic University of America (CUA) got it exactly right and set an important example when he announced plans last week to shift entirely to single-sex dorms. Not only is the action consistent with the university's Catholic mission - and arguably necessary for that reason alone - it is equally a matter of common sense. There is a wealth of accumulating social-science data that confirms the terrible, lifelong impact that the college "party" lifestyle can have on bright young men and women.
Officials at Catholic University say the early response to their plan to phase out coed dorms has been highly favorable, but not every college student is anxious to see the move become a trend.
A year after being tapped for one of the highest-profile posts in Catholic education, John Garvey isn't surprised by the political pressures and criticisms that have come with the job. In fact, the Catholic University of America president said some of that criticism is a welcome change from the type he's used to.
John Garvey replaced David M. O'Connell as the president of Catholic University of America Tuesday. Mr. Garvey will be the third lay president at the university.
Police arrested a mother after she reportedly told officers she didn't want her children any longer.
Garvey said he has used a metaphor of teaching someone golf for how to evangelize: "it would be odd, and probably not very attractive, to say, now here's the deal, when you’re on the tee, you don't go outside the white stakes, because they’re out of bounds, and the penalty is stroke and distance…what you should do, is say the goal is to get the ball in the hole with the fewest strokes,
"They're both apt description of what golf is, and of course the second description doesn’t mean you’re allowed to ignore out of bounds markers or sand traps."
