Patrick Reilly: “I’ve Seen Significant Improvement in Catholic Higher Education”

Patrick Reilly, the president of The Cardinal Newman Society, told The Washington Examiner about his own faith, the secularization of many Catholic college and the “significant improvement in Catholic higher education” he has seen in recent years.

The bishops, the Vatican and many Catholic educators have all been working toward the same goal, so yes, I’ve seen significant improvement in Catholic higher education. Nearly every Catholic university in the country is talking about Catholic identity, and some are doing more than others to strengthen it. And part of that is there’s a greater interest today among young people in spiritual questions — that’s something studies have documented — and a sense that they’re not getting answers from the type of education that was provided over the last few decades.
