SPECIAL COLLECTION: The Catholic University of America is unique among universities in the U. S. – even among Catholic universities.  Established by the Vatican and the U. S. bishops in 1887, it is the national university of the Catholic Church.  It is proud to have nearly one third of the U. S. bishops as alumni, along with more than 12,400 living priests and religious from around the world. Next weekend, we will be taking up the National Collection for the Catholic University of America.  Your support will enable Catholic University to expand its impact in preparing the next generation of leadership for our Church and nation.  We appreciate your generosity.
