Message from Archbishop Carroll President, Larry Savoy

Dear Archbishop Carroll Community,

I wanted to take a moment to express the outrage, hurt and sadness that I feel as we deal with the senseless death of our brothers and sister George Floyd, Amhad Aubrey, Breonna Taylor and so many other African Americans whose names we may not know. We must not let this moment pass without advocating for the equal rights of all in our society and making sure that our voices are heard.

The mission of our school is to welcome young people and empower them in an academically rigorous, diverse, and supportive learning environment where they work daily to think critically, creatively, and morally so that they can serve God with purpose. As a Catholic school, Archbishop Carroll continues to lead the way in creating future leaders who will positively impact change in our society. We must continue to do God’s work by educating our next generation of leaders with the values clearly reflected in our faith and know that our community has a responsibility to speak up and out for those who may feel they do not have a voice.

It is time for the Archbishop Carroll Community to stand united with this current Civil Rights movement. As Dr. King said: “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” We must exercise our learned values and faith to help influence the change we must see in our society.

With the COVID-19 pandemic, we have proven that we can get through difficult times with planning, preparation and good people in place. In a similar spirit, I look forward to developing opportunities to constructively express our frustrations and outrage, and collaborating on strategies to ensure there is truly Justice for All.

God bless you and continue to fight the good fight!

Pro Deo et Patria (For God and Country)!


Larry Savoy ’93 President
