We’re proud to present to you our eighth annual Catholic Identity College Guide.

Beginning on page C1, our special section spotlights 33 institutions of higher learning that are dedicated to following the teachings of the Church and the leadership of the Pope and the bishops, as laid out by Blessed Pope John Paul II in his 1990 apostolic constitution Ex Corde Ecclesiae.

John Paul’s important document powerfully reinforced the Church’s commitment to the education and formation of the faithful and clearly addressed the responsibility of teachers who assist in the formation of young men and women at Catholic colleges and universities.

These institutions are a gift to the Church. I pray that the number of participants continues to grow, thereby increasing the faith of all who attend — and those they will inspire.

God bless you!
