"The Catholic Center at Tulane University has been a support to Catholic students and a voice for Catholic thought for many years. The new building, named in honor of Fr. Val McInnes, O.P, will strengthen the Center’s presence and ministries. It will, I hope, be supported by Fr. McInnes’ many friends and by all concerned about the vitality of our Church on a major university campus."
-Francis Cardinal George, OMI
Archbishop of Chicago
*The Archbishop received a Doctor of Philosophy degree in American Philosophy from
Tulane University in 1970 and the Tulane Alumnus Award in 2005.
