At Notre Dame University, Saint Brother André is well known!
In June 2022, I was invited to the city of South Bend, Indiana (USA), to attend a conference on religious archives. The event was held on the campus of the University of Notre Dame. This institution shares some commonalities with Saint Joseph’s Oratory of Mount Royal. First, it was founded by a Father of the Congregation of Holy Cross, Father Édouard Sorin (1814-1893). Like the Oratory, the university was placed under the protection of the Congregation of Holy Cross. But above all, Brother André is very present there.
So it was with the feeling of being on a family visit that I explored the illustrious institution. Not surprisingly, the presence of Saint Brother André is clearly visible on the buildings and inside the chapels that make up the institution.
