    “As an alumnus of Holy Cross I admire the progress the College has made in many ways, but I am deeply concerned about the extent of its secularization. I support appropriate measures to correct that condition and preserve Holy Cross’ Catholic character. I support the re-establishment of a core of studies in philosophy and religion.”
