Download PDF for this date

Archbishop Richard J. Cushing of Boston dedicated a Catholic chapel this week-end on the campus of Brandeis University, Jewish sponsored non-sectarian college here. The university has built three chapels, one each for Jewish, Protestant and Catholic students.

After consecrating the building and naming it Bethlehem, Archbishop Cushing lauded Brandeis, insisting that it “deserves the praise of all men of good will” for making religious instruction and devotions available to all students. Noting that three chapels had been built, he said that Brandeis had “gone all the way” in the direction of bringing religion into the lives of its students.
