Opening Mass

The annual Mass opening the University of Notre Dame’s 2009-10 academic year was celebrated Aug. 25 in the Joyce Center fieldhouse. Notre Dame President Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., presided and preached at the Mass, which was preceded by an academic procession of Notre Dame faculty and followed by the traditional University picnic for students, faculty, staff and their families on the Hesburgh Library mall.
