John Paul the Great Catholic Univ. to Dedicate New Campus

John Paul the Great Catholic University will celebrate the dedication and blessing of its new permanent campus with Bishop Emeritus Robert Brom and Chaplain Fr. Richard Huston in the heart of historic downtown Escondido, Calif., this Saturday, May 3.

The University will also bestow its first Impacting Culture for Christ awards to “those who give selflessly of themselves and whose witness provides a model for Impacting Culture for Christ in our contemporary culture.”  This year, the honorees are Philip Rivers, San Diego Chargers quarterback, and Alan Lane, President and CEO of Silvergate Bank and chair of the board of trustees at JP the Great.

The University reports:

The dedication of a new Catholic University campus is an increasingly rare event.The dedication follows by just a few days the canonization of Pope John Paul II, who in his Apostolic Constitution on Catholic Universities starts out by noting that the Catholic University may be traced back to the very origin of the University as an institution and it is recognized as an incomparable centre of creativity and dissemination of knowledge for the good of humanity. The University unites existentially the search for truth, and the certainty of already knowing the fount of truth.

…As the University looks forward - the future is very promising. We are excited to build on the momentum generated by our new permanent campus. We are excited about the possibilities of physically expanding our campus, and we are excited to build on the success of our academic programs and our alumni (100+ with undergraduate degrees in Communications Media and Business and graduate degrees in Film Producing and Biblical Theology).

Join us as we build the spiritual, educational, and physical infrastructure necessary to grow to significance.

John Paul the Great Catholic University is recommended in The Newman Guide for its strong Catholic identity.
