Support Tutu award

I applaud and support Gonzaga University’s president and board of trustees for their decision to award an honorary degree to Archbishop Desmond Tutu. Archbishop Tutu has blessed the world with his life of service to his God and his people, a mission Gonzaga embraces in its commitment to Catholicism and leading a life for others.

We at Gonzaga can be proud to have him at our commencement, recognizing and sharing with him Christ’s message of love and tolerance.
