Katie Ward ESS Frabutt Award

Katie Ward, a Notre Dame senior and future member of ACE 26, was recently awarded the 2019 Frabutt Prize for Outstanding Community-Based Research in recognition of her research on the intersection of Catholic identity and Native spirituality in three Native American Catholic schools.

Ward, an Education, Schooling and Society (ESS) minor, traces her interest in Native American education as far back as high school, during which she spent a week in an experiential learning course at Red Cloud Indian School in South Dakota. Her experiences in the third-grade classroom began to shape her academic interest in Native American education systems.

2019 Lenten Reflections - Easter Sunday

By: Deacon Brogan Ryan, C.S.C. - Rector, Keough Hall

Read this Sunday's Gospel

Friends, Happy Easter!

Today we arrive at the tomb of Jesus, our beloved friend and savior, with the women of Galilee – Mary Magdalene, Joanna and Mary, the Mother of James – the first witnesses to the Resurrection. We all arrive at the tomb with our own expectations. The first disciples come after the trauma of Good Friday to mourn their leader and friend. They are carrying spices that they expect to leave outside his sealed tomb. They hope to simply pay their respects. We arrive at the end of Holy Week and at the end of our own Lenten journeys. We each carry our individual Lenten offerings and Easter expectations for what resurrection and new life will look like for us.
