Francis Cardinal George Scholarship

“Christ is the difference that God makes in this world;

and through the Church we are able to live in Christ.”

– Francis Cardinal George


The Institute for Pastoral Leadership has responded to the call of the late Francis Cardinal George that the Archdiocese of Chicago – and beyond – respond to the New Evangelization.

The mission of all lay men and women is to encounter, explore and engage their relationships with Jesus Christ and bring the Gospel message to the world.

Your contribution to the Francis Cardinal George Scholarship empowers the Institute for Pastoral Leadership to equip adults with the academic and formational tools needed to help God’s people encounter and build that relationship with Christ through his Church.


Thank you in advance for your generosity and support for the Institute and its efforts.
