When the University of Notre Dame Fighting Irish roll into New York City for their Shamrock Series football game against Syracuse Saturday (Nov. 17) at Yankee Stadium, they’ll be doing a lot more than playing football.
As part of their weekend visit to the Big Apple, Notre Dame and its fans will be celebrating their “subway alumni” in New York with a number of events around the city beginning Thursday (Nov. 15) and concluding with the game Saturday afternoon.
Among the planned events are a prayer service at St. Peter’s Church, a Mass at St. Patrick’s Cathedral, a play that celebrates the history of Notre Dame, a community service project and several panel expert discussions. All of these events are open to the public free of charge, though some require advance registration online. The Empire State Building will also be illuminated in blue and gold in recognition of Notre Dame’s visit to New York City.
Here is a complete list of times and locations for Shamrock Series events:
Thursday, Nov. 15
- 2-3 p.m. — Prayer service at St. Peter’s Church in Manhattan in honor of members of the Notre Dame Family involved in the Sept. 11 attacks.
- 6:42-8 p.m. — “Sorin: A Notre Dame Story” at the Peter Jay Sharp Theatre at Symphony Space, 2537 Broadway at 95th St.; complimentary tickets available online.
