Eric J. Holcomb, governor of Indiana, will attend the opening ceremony of the Notre Dame Trail, a two-week pilgrimage celebrating the 175th anniversary of the University of Notre Dame. The Notre Dame Trail begins Aug. 13 (Sunday) in Vincennes, Indiana.
Accompanied by Notre Dame President Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., Holcomb will deliver a brief address at 8:30 p.m. at a dinner in Kimmell Park. He will also place stamps in the Notre Dame Trail passports of the 32 pilgrims journeying more than 300 miles from Vincennes to South Bend in commemoration of the path traversed by Notre Dame founder Rev. Edward F. Sorin, C.S.C., and the Holy Cross Brothers in November 1842.
