Xavier University President Fr. Michael Graham, S.J. stood up for the teachings of the Church and refused to pay for contraception in the University’s health care plan. After some faculty members raised a stink about it, he reversed course and has sold out to the relativists.

This is the first case I am aware of in which a Catholic institution has opposed the HHS Mandate and then reversed course. Let us all pray for Fr.

They are pretty good at identifying faithful, solid Catholic schools.

My personal recommendation is of course my alma mater, Franciscan University, where you can be taught by some of the greatest minds in the Catholic Church like Dr. Scott Hahn, Dr. Regis Martin, Dr. Alan Schreck, and Dr. Mark Miravalle. The faculty takes an oath of loyalty to the Church’s magisterium, and Franciscan was the first University in America to institute the oath – back in 1989.

And on top of that, he seemed to apologize for not being in the “center” on this issue.
