Fading Catholic Faculty

History demonstrates that the secularization of a religious college or university is the product of the secularization of its faculty.  While the outward signs of religious practice typically continue well after the faculty has been transformed, giving the impression that nothing has changed, in the end only traces of that religious identity remain.

The University should not compromise its academic aspirations in its efforts to maintain its Catholic identity.

That’s a shocking declaration from a place where, Fr. Hesburgh has declared, “the Church does its thinking” and reflects a radical weakening of Catholic identity under the Golden Dome. Still, hope is not lost! Ans we invite you to learn more about our mission of Catholic renewal at Notre Dame and how you can help.

Hope is not lost!

There remain a splendid, if radically reduced, corps of Catholic scholars at Notre Dame, a number of supportive non-Catholics, a heavily Catholic student body, and the continuing, if diminished, presence of priests on the campus.  And there is Sycamore Trust – the first effort of its kind by alumni to resist the forces of secularization at their alma mater.
