Responding to the United States Postal Service’s announcement Tuesday (Sept. 20) that it will issue a stamp next year honoring the late Rev. Theodore M. Hesburgh, C.S.C., University of Notre Dame President Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., said: “It’s fitting that the United States recognizes Father Hesburgh’s contributions to our nation and the world in a medium that will literally transport his legacy to households across America and around the world.”
The 47-cent forever stamp will be issued next fall with an unveiling ceremony at the University to include the first-day-of-issue of the stamp at Notre Dame’s post office. Additional information will be provided in coming months.
