From August 13 to 26, 2017, as part of the University’s 175th anniversary celebration, the Notre Dame Trail will commemorate Father Sorin and the Holy Cross Brothers’ journey. A small group of pilgrims will make the entire 300+ mile journey from Vincennes to Notre Dame over these two weeks.
The 1-Day Pilgrimage is the last leg of the Notre Dame Trail, a three-mile walk from downtown South Bend to Notre Dame. The trail culminates in a celebratory Mass with University President Rev. John I. Jenkins and a 175th Anniversary picnic.
The day’s events are FREE for all pilgrims, beginning at 8:30am on Saturday, August 26th. All participants are required to register online at Trail.ND.edu.
