Sifting Through The Garbage

Since this is the first post on this site, I would like to take the time to introduce myself.  My name is Tim and I am a Catholic.  A real one.  I believe that Jesus is Lord and that the Pope is His Earthly Representative.  I believe that in matters of Faith and Morals, the decrees of the Pope are the decrees of God.  Period.  There is no room for discussion.  I am the Moderator/Administrator here.

The purpose of this Blog is to enable people to determine whether a Catholic school they are interested in attending is truly Catholic or if it only appears to be "Catholic".  There is really a big difference.  So, here is how it works;  if you have the name of a school, i.e. College,University, and in some cases high school, that you are considering attending, send us the name and location of the school and we will do our best to determine if they are Faithful to the teachings of the Catholic Church.  We will send you an e-mail of our findings if you wish as well as publish the results in a post on this site.  Your name will never be divulged and all inquiries are considered confidential.  In order to receive a personal response, you must include your e-mail address in your inquiry.  Any and all information you may find may also be brought to our attention, but remember that all information must be verifiable and will be checked before it is released.

The Cardinal Newman Society has a list of Faithful Colleges and Universities on their website,
http://cardinalnewmansociety.org/ and they do a very good job of telling you about their good points.

We aren't looking at these schools as that has already been done quite well.  We look at the ones that might be considered marginally Catholic; don't follow the Magisterium or the Ex Corde Ecclesiae; don't follow the USCCB in their methodology or campus promotions; the ones that laugh at the teachings of the Church and try to pass themselves off as Catholic in order to enhance their "bottom line" otherwise known as "Politically Correct".  There are an awful lot of these schools, and we will help you weed them out.  True Catholic Education is a great gift from God...use it to strengthen your Faith and help you on your journey Home.

All responses and replies are monitored and any inappropriate responses will be deleted, so think before you write.  With the help of God's Grace, we will try and work through the "Garbage" and get to the Truth as it should be seen and taught.
Jesus is Lord.
