Campus Catholicity Counts

Each year, together with our sister publication, Faith & Family magazine, the Register invites Catholic colleges and universities to participate in Circle Media’s Catholic Identity College Guide.

The results — which we publish in both print publications, plus online at and — help guide students and their parents onto campuses that take their Catholic identity seriously enough to fulfill the basic requirements of Pope John Paul’s Ex Corde Ecclesiae — the landmark document of the renewal of Catholic higher learning.

I mention this subject this week because the guide is coming your way in our very next issue. Please make a point to look for it and, if you don’t know a school-shopping student or parent, please find one and offer them your copy of our guide.

I’ll look forward to hearing back from proud and happy Catholic parents for years to come.
