Novena 2017

Annual Novena, August 14-22, 2017

For Catholic Higher Education and The University of Notre Dame


As students prepare to resume classes at Catholic colleges and universities across the nation, we invite you to join us in a novena to protect and promote the mission of Catholic higher education, and especially of our beloved Notre Dame — that she may be a beacon of light, hope, and truth in a world beset by darkness, despair, and deceit.

August 14-22, 2017

Amen.
