Spread the Word

We are pleased to report that we are back on the official program for this year’s Reunion Weekend. Even so, our experience has been that most people learn about our Breakfast by word of mouth. Therefore if you know of anyone who will be on campus for Reunion Weekend, please tell them about our event. And if you would like to help us further spread the word, please let us know.  You can contact us at (888) 844-1390 or


Informed discussions of current topics and trends that bear importantly on the Catholic identity of Notre Dame

Our Annual Breakfast during Alumni Weekend has become an extremely popular event with an overflowing attendance each year and a live broadcast of the program for those who are unable to be there in person. Knowledgeable speakers on faculty such as Fr. Bill Miscamble, Prof. Gerry Bradley, Prof. Walter Nicgorski, Prof. Charlie Rice and Prof. Ralph McInerny have joined students, alumni and others to address a range of issues relating to Notre Dame‘s Catholic identity.
