Prayer Card


The battle for Notre Dame’s Catholic identity cannot be won without a constant outpouring of prayer that is humble, trusting, and persevering in love. By joining our Apostolate, you are simply making yourself available as you are able to participate in regular and special prayer projects in support of our mission for authentic Catholic renewal at Notre Dame. These include:

  • A Novena for Catholic Education as students are returning to campus following summer break.
  • A meditation on the Twelve-Days of Christmas.
  • Annual Easter and Christmas prayers.
  • Ember Days for alumni (St. Lucy’s Feast), students (Ash Wednesday), administration (Whitsun), and faculty (Exaltation of the Cross).
  • Rosary at the Grotto during Reunion Weekend.

Eternal God, Creator and Sustainer of All Life, we beseech You to pour forth Your blessing on our beloved Notre Dame that she may be of special service to Your Church. Lead those entrusted with her mission by Your Divine Light. Help those who have benefited from her mission to be fully committed to supporting and defending it. Inspire the men and women of Sycamore Trust and the entire Notre Dame family with the words of our Holy Father, Pope Francis, to give the “uncompromising witness of Catholic Universities to the Church’s moral teaching, and the defense of her freedom…especially in the face of efforts, from whatever quarter, to dilute that indispensable witness.“ We make our prayer through the intercession of Mary, Notre Dame, Our Mother, and in the Name of Jesus Christ, Your Son, Who lives and reigns with You, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever. Amen
