One visit to Notre Dame, and it is obvious that the Catholic faith is indeed an integral part of campus life. Inspired by the Congregation of Holy Cross, educating the mind and the heart is at the core of our mission. We encourage students from all backgrounds and faith traditions to learn more about the Catholic faith at Notre Dame. We also invite you to learn more about the seven Sacraments of the Church, explore our sacramental preparation offerings and grow in your understanding of issues and themes that are presently impacting the Catholic Church.
