Catholic Schools Should Practice What They Are Supposed to Preach
Tis the season of students heading off to college. Parents across the country tearfully wave goodbye, as the child they spent 18 years mentoring and guiding walks toward the dorm carrying Costco-sized boxes of granola bars. Then Mom and Dad pray to God that their child eats healthy, doesn’t party too hard, and goes to church every Sunday.
Parents know that college is a crucial formative period in life, a time when students begin to make their own choices and settle their own beliefs as independent young adults. Sadly, Dynamic Catholic states that 85 percent of Catholic young adults stop practicing their faith within ten years of their confirmation, with many of them lapsing during college.
To insure against this, some parents and students invest in faith-based education, often at greater cost than other choices. That’s why it is essential that colleges that use their “Catholicism” as a recruiting tool to attract graduating high-school seniors and their families live out their faith and accept the challenges of not only educating students for their future career paths, but also of instructing them in the beliefs the Church holds, preserves, and spreads. Nowhere is this more important than on the issue of abortion and a faith-based approach to fertility.
