During 2017 with the cooperation of a number of loyal benefactors, the IDF secured the financial down payment on an endowed chair at the Angelicum. At present we are nearly 75% of the way to our goal of $1.5 million to activate the Fr. Val McInnes, OP Chair and secure vital income for this teaching ministry at the service of the Church in Rome. Many of you will be receiving more information in the mail about how you can help us complete this exciting project. We are also pleased to announce that in the next few weeks we expect to launch The Angelicum News in order to reconnect to alumni and friends of the Angelicum in North America.
