Rev. Pete McCormick, C.S.C., associate director of campus ministry, has been appointed director of the University of Notre Dame’s Office of Campus Ministry, effective Feb 1.
As director of Campus Ministry within the Division of Student Affairs, Father McCormick will oversee a staff of some 30 clerical, religious and lay ministers tending to the spiritual needs of all Notre Dame students. He will replace Rev. James B. King, C.S.C., who has served as director since April 2012, and who will continue as religious superior of Holy Cross priests and brothers at Notre Dame.
“Campus Ministry is central to Notre Dame’s Catholic mission, and I am very pleased that someone with Father Pete’s energy, enthusiasm, administrative skills and dedication to service as a Holy Cross priest will assume the director role,” said Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., president of the University of Notre Dame. “I want to thank Father Jim King who, in addition to other significant responsibilities at the University, served as director until the ideal person was ready to take over.”
