STATEMENT FROM CARDINAL RIGALI
On the death of Rosemont College President Ann Amore

Rosemont College announced the death of President Ann M. Amore, Ph.D., on December 19, 2005. Cardinal Justin Rigali, Archbishop of Philadelphia, issues the following statement concerning her death:

I was saddened to learn of the death of Dr. Amore. In her letter to the Rosemont community announcing that she was taking a leave of absence, Dr. Amore wrote that it was a joy and a privilege for her to serve as Rosemont's President since 2001. She conveyed that joy and was devoted to the faculty and students of the school. She will be missed by the Rosemont family and those involved with academic administration in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia.

From her roots in New York City, Dr. Amore joined a love for academics, specifically English literature, and dedication to community service. Her service reached a high point in her position as President of Rosemont College. The college is known for its commitment to excellence in education within the predominantly female student body whom Dr. Amore was proud to lead. Her memory will endure at Rosemont.

I offer my condolences to the family of Dr. Amore, in particular her father Edward, and brothers Edward Jr. and Glenn, and to the entire Rosemont College community. I pray that they may find comfort in our Lord Jesus, the Savior whose birth we prepare to celebrate and the One who gives us a share in eternal life.
