If you are considering a vocation to the priesthood or religious life, or if you have questions about the Congregation of Holy Cross, we're here to help. If you are a student at Notre Dame, or if you reside in the South Bend area, we have people available to talk to you, and direct you to additional resources and events that might be helpful in your discernment.
