From the Alumni Association
As a way of showing prayerful solidarity with those affected by the tornadoes and severe storms in Oklahoma, Texas, and Kansas, the green Alumni Association candle will be lit at the Grotto and prayers will be offered. If you would like to share a special intention, please submit a Grotto prayer request or post your request at FaithND’s Facebook page. Prayers were also offered for the victims of these natural tragedies at the Basilica of the Sacred Heart Mass on Tuesday.
Mindful of the difficult days that lie ahead for our fellow alumni, parents, and friends dealing with this devastation, we ask that God’s mercy and strength guide and sustain them.

“The prayers of the Notre Dame community are with all who have been affected by the devastating tornado that swept across Oklahoma, in particular, as well as Texas and Kansas. To those who have lost loved ones, you have our deepest condolences. To those who have been injured, may God provide you with comfort and healing. To those who have responded with assistance to this tragedy, you have our heartfelt appreciation. And to those who are able, please consider donating to relief efforts through organizations such as Catholic Charities USA and the American Red Cross."
