The Bicentennial of Rev. Edward Frederick Sorin, C.S.C. | Feb. 5, 2014 | University of Notre Dame
On February 6, the University of Notre Dame begins a months-long tribute marking the bicentennial of the birth of her founder, Fr. Edward Sorin, C.S.C.
Through a series of celebrations and events, we will honor the legacy of our beloved founder: from the bold, audacious Holy Cross missionary who started the university, to the wise, unwavering leader whose actions shaped the arc of the University's history in countless ways.
On February 6, 2014, and continuing for a year, the University of Notre Dame will commemorate the bicentennial of Father Edward Sorin’s birth. We will celebrate his vision for Notre Dame, his ministry as a Holy Cross priest, and his zeal for building a great university. In so doing, I hope we will deepen our own commitment to making Notre Dame even more, in his words, “a means for good.”
