The University of Notre Dame and the Benedictine Community at Kylemore Abbey in Connemara, County Galway, Ireland, have formed a partnership to create a center to advance their shared spiritual, cultural and educational missions.
The programs offered by the center will draw both upon the rich tradition of Benedictine spirituality and the academic rigor of Notre Dame. Programming, which will include courses of varied length and span a variety of academic disciplines, is expected to begin in 2016.
Reflecting upon this new partnership, Mother Maire Hickey, the abbess of the Benedictine Community at Kylemore Abbey, stated, “I am delighted that the University of Notre Dame has responded favorably to our invitation to join our community in advancing our educational and spiritual mission. I have high hopes that this partnership will yield rich fruits for generations to come.”
