June 15 - Statement of The Cardinal on The Appointment of Boston College Law School Dean John Garvey As President of Catholic University*



“Dean John Garvey is an outstanding selection to be President of Catholic University.   His commitment to the mission of Catholic education and dedication to exceptional academic achievement will be of great benefit to the University and its students and faculty.  He has served Boston College with distinction during the past eleven years as Dean of the Law School and will bring a genuine concern for the good of the Church to his new work.   Dean Garvey takes over a university that has grown stronger under the leadership of Bishop-elect  David M. O'Connell.  We pray that the Lord bless both President Garvey and Bishop O’Connell with wisdom and knowledge as they go forward with their new responsibilities.”
