Archbishop McCarrick Returning to Alma Mater as New Chancellor


On Tuesday, January 16, Archbishop Theodore E. McCarrick, newly installed Archbishop of Washington, will be returning for the first time to his alma mater, The Catholic University of America, in his new capacity as university chancellor.

The university community students, staff, faculty and administrators will join him at the 12:10 p.m. Mass in The Crypt Church of the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, which adjoins CUA's campus.

Archbishop McCarrick will be the principal celebrant and homilist at the Mass. Immediately following the Mass, a reception will be held in Caldwell Hall Auditorium, providing the CUA community with an opportunity to greet its new chancellor.

Archbishop McCarrick is a double alumnus of CUA. He received an M.A. degree in Social Sciences from Catholic University in 1960 and a Ph.D. in Sociology from CUA in 1963. Between 1958 and 1965 he served the university as its assistant chaplain, dean of students and director of development. He has been a member of Catholic University's Board of Trustees since 1993.
