Campus Ministry is committed to providing opportunities for staff to deepen their faith lives. From lectures to Masses to liturgical events, we can assist you on your own spiritual journey at Notre Dame. 

Rev. Jim Bracke, C.S.C., serves as the university's staff chaplain. Staff can call on him for council, hospital visits or to perform a funeral. His job is to minister to everyone, regardless of religious affiliation. 

Fr. Jim has initiated several programs aimed at meeting the spiritual needs of Notre Dame staff, including staff Masses and discussion groups. Staff are invited to learn more about these opportunities below. 

To speak with Fr. Jim directly, please call (574) 631-4131 or email

In the event of a death of an employee, retiree or family member, the family should notify Human Resources via the AskHR Helpline, (574) 631-5900, as soon as possible. The office will then notify Fr. Jim immediately.
