Our national university is educating an important generation of lay and ordained leaders within the United States. The Catholic University of America in Washington, DC is the only institution of higher education founded by the U.S. bishops and chartered by the Vatican. The Catholic University of America educates clergy, religious, and young lay men and women from every geographical region of the United States. Nearly 500 Catholic parishes participate in the University's Parish Scholarship Programs, through which 1,521 undergraduates are nominated by their pastors to receive annual scholarships valued at 4.5 million. Your gift helps to make this happen. Through its national seminary, the University provides graduate degrees for seminarians sponsored by nearly 195 U.S. Catholic Dioceses. Of our bishops and cardinals, 95 have been educated at the Catholic University of America. Please use your specially marked envelopes from your envelope packets or use a plain envelope marked "Catholic University." Please place these envelopes in the regular collections next weekend.
