Pope Francis Will Find U.S. Catholic Education Struggling, But Many Signs of Hope
Pope Francis Will Find U.S. Catholic Education Struggling, But Many Signs of Hope
9/3/2015 || When Pope Francis arrives in the United States on September 22, he will find Catholic education not only in a crisis of truth and faith but also fighting for survival, Cardinal Newman Society President Patrick Reilly writes in a special issue from Inside The Vatican commemorating the Holy Father’s upcoming visit.

However, the renewal begun by his predecessor, Pope Benedict XVI, is already taking hold in America and offers a new sense of hope for those who desire authentic and faithful Catholic education, Reilly explains.

In his article, “The ‘Crisis of Truth’ (and the Renewal) in American Catholic Education,” Reilly details the struggles in Catholic schools and colleges and the response needed to restore faithful education.

New Education Major at Belmont Abbey College Focuses on Moral Formation
 
New Education Major at Belmont Abbey College Focuses on Moral Formation
9/2/2015 || A new major at Belmont Abbey College in Belmont, N.C., will prepare aspiring Catholic school teachers to guide students in moral formation, first and foremost. The Catholic Educational Studies major is distinct from the College’s Elementary Education major, as it focuses specifically on students who want to teach in a Catholic setting, explained the program’s director, Dr. Laura Campbell, in an interview with The Cardinal Newman Society.

Campbell said that the major’s focus on Catholic spiritual formation is necessary in today’s educational world. “Students who desire to teach in a Catholic middle or secondary school or in a Catholic parish need to learn about the mission and vision of Catholic education,” she said. “It is not enough to have attended Catholic schools.”


Facing Supreme Court Decision, Thomas Aquinas College Refuses to Compromise Catholic Beliefs
 
Facing Supreme Court Decision, Thomas Aquinas College Refuses to Compromise Catholic Beliefs
9/1/2015 || Last week, Thomas Aquinas College (TAC) in Santa Paula, Calif., appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court for relief from the “HHS Mandate” with The Catholic University of America and the Archdiocese of Washington, D.C. But should the Court fail to protect their religious freedom, TAC President Dr. Michael F. McLean told The Cardinal Newman Society that his faithful college is prepared to pay significant fines rather than violate its beliefs.

In an interview with the Newman Society, McLean discussed the pressing need for religious freedom from the sterilization and contraceptive mandate, especially for Catholic colleges that wish to maintain their sincerely held religious beliefs.

On August 25, attorneys for TAC submitted a brief to the Supreme Court, urging the Court to take up the College’s case and refuting the government’s latest arguments against exempting the College from the federal mandate. The College explained why it should be exempted from the HHS mandate and any government requirements that would compel it to go against its Catholic identity and mission by facilitating free contraceptive, abortifacient and sterilization coverage for its employees.


Classroom Ethics: Are Planned Parenthood Videos Morally OK?
 
Classroom Ethics: Are Planned Parenthood Videos Morally OK?
9/1/2015 || A debate among pro-life advocates over the ethics of undercover videos exposing Planned Parenthood’s sale of aborted babies’ body parts is the sort of discussion that college students need to have today, says a prominent moral theologian.

The organization behind the videos—The Center for Medical Progress (CMP)—has faced criticism by pro-life legal scholar Robert George, who reportedly accused the group in a Facebook post of “Telling lies to gain access to Planned Parenthood.” But some moral theologians at Catholic colleges defend the practice, even while acknowledging the moral complexity.

While this topic is undoubtedly “difficult,” it is nevertheless “very important for people to think about,” said Dr. Janet Smith, professor of moral theology at Sacred Heart Major Seminary in Detroit, in an interview with The Cardinal Newman Society. She said that it is crucial for students to wrestle with topics such as this at the college level, even though there may not be agreement on the answers.


Manhattan College Faculty Do Not Preserve Religious Environment, Government Finds
 
Manhattan College Faculty Do Not Preserve Religious Environment, Government Finds
8/27/2015 || The trickle-down effect of Catholic identity concerns and unconstitutional oversight from the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has reared its ugly head at yet another Catholic college, with the latest ruling stating that adjunct faculty at Manhattan College do not perform a specific religious function within the institution.

As has been the case with other NLRB rulings against Catholic colleges, the regional Board’s recent unconstitutional interference into the affairs of several Catholic colleges has exposed Catholic identity concerns. This week, the NLRB upheld its decision that Manhattan College is not exempt from federal oversight, noting that the hiring and interview practices fall well short in maintaining a Catholic environment.


Newman Society, Pro-Life Leaders Demand Attention to Planned Parenthood Scandal
 
Newman Society, Pro-Life Leaders Demand Attention to Planned Parenthood Scandal
8/27/2015 || Following the release of an investigative report exposing outrageous ties between Catholic colleges and Planned Parenthood, The Cardinal Newman Society has joined with pro-life leaders to demand media coverage of Planned Parenthood’s horrific practices.

Brent Bozell, president of Media Research Center and a member of the Newman Society’s board of directors, organized the joint letter to network news chiefs at ABC, CBS and NBC. “Planned Parenthood is the nation’s largest abortion business and targets college students and other young adults, luring them into the Culture of Death,” said Newman Society President Patrick Reilly, who signed the letter.  “Americans need to know what their tax dollars and even some Catholic institutions are supporting.”

Other leaders listed among the 28 signers include Marjorie Dannenfelser of the Susan B. Anthony List, Kristan Hawkins of Students for Life of America, Penny Nance of Concerned Women for America, Lila Rose of Live Action, John-Henry Westen of LifeSiteNews.com, Steven Ertelt of LifeNews.com, and Andrea Lafferty of the Traditional Values Coalition.
