Support the Renewal of Catholic Liberal Education

“I am greatly encouraged by the renewal underway in Catholic education and am grateful to the Institute for Catholic Liberal Education for its efforts to support it. The Institute’s work to form school leaders and teachers has borne much fruit, including in my own Archdiocese. I am happy to see the growth occurring in movements of renewal that embrace the Church’s mission to form disciples and to teach the liberal arts.”

– Most Reverend Samuel J. Aquila, Archbishop of Denver
