  • On November 6, 2017, Archbishop Aymond delivered a speech to thousands of Catholic school teachers and administrators who attended the Archdiocese’s Day of Formation. Aymond spoke about the need for schools to encourage vocations, hire faith-filled Catholics, and to promote prayer and the sacraments. (Clarion Herald)
  • Archbishop Aymond spoke out against Xavier University of Louisiana, a Catholic university that chose to honor Attorney General Eric Holder and Senator Mary Landrieu, both of whom are strongly pro-abortion and pro-contraception. In a statement, Aymond wrote that he was “not consulted on the proposed candidates and remain disappointed in this decision by the university administration.” (LifeSiteNews)
  • While Bishop of Austin, Archbishop Aymond chastised St. Edwards University for hosting the dissident theologian Fr. Charles Curran. Curran has actively condemned the Church’s teaching on abortion, contraception, and homosexuality, and for this reason, Aymond requested that the priests in his diocese not publicize Curran’s lecture. Aymond also stated that “it does not foster the Catholic identity of a university to present him as a guest lecturer.” (LifeSiteNews)
