Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
Please consider a generous gift to the upcoming second collection in support of The Catholic University of America (CUA). Located in our nation’s capital, it was founded by a pontifical charter in 1887 as the research university of the Catholic Church in the United States. Your gift to this second collection, the only national one for Catholic higher education in the United States, will not only support students, but also helps the University better serve dioceses and parishes through innovative research initiatives and training programs.
A prime example is The Catholic Project, an initiative that brings together clergy and laity to address the challenges faced by the domestic Church, the family. CUA also provides excellence in education, formation, research, events, and media; a Master’s program in Ecclesial Administration and Management; and a credentialing program that prepares recent graduates to serve as campus ministers.
Our contributions are vital to a successful academic year and to the important work undertaken by the University on behalf of the Church and the faithful. You can make a contribution to the mission of Catholic University at your parish, or online through its dedicated site on the #igivecatholictogether platform.
Please be as generous as you can in supporting this important collection. Be assured of my prayers for you and your families. May God bless you abundantly.
Sincerely in Christ,
+Most Reverend Nelson J. Pérez, D.D.
Archbishop of Philadelphia
