Join Me on the Notre Dame Trail August 26

Please join me on the Notre Dame Trail August 26, 2017 as we celebrate the 175th anniversary of the University of Notre Dame.

Together with thousands of members of the Notre Dame and South Bend communities, we will join together in physical activity, spiritual inspiration, Mass, and fun!

The day’s activities will begin at 8:30 am at Howard Park with a blessing and welcome from Rev. John I. Jenkins, CSC, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, and Chairman Warren from the Pokagon Band. Along with colleagues, friends, and family, we will walk three miles to campus and celebrate Mass at 11:30 am on the Bond Hall Quad. The Notre Dame Marching Band will also provide a free concert prior to the Mass.

At 12:30 pm, a free picnic will be available on South Quad, featuring delightful food, beverages, kids games, and live music.

I hope you will consider joining me on the Notre Dame Trail. Please register at and let me know if you need any additional information. I look forward to seeing you on the 26th!

Amazing Flying Incense in Santiago, Spain: The Botafumeiro

I had the distinct privilege last summer to attend mass in Santiago, Spain. I was amazed at the end of mass when they brought out the flying incense -- like nothing I have ever seen before. The Botafumeiro is a famous flying incense expeller found in the Santiago de Compostela Cathedral in Spain. If you had the opportunity to walk the Camino de Santiago, you likely saw this for yourself. Honestly, I will never forget it. Brilliant.
