Rev. Theodore M. Hesburgh, C.S.C

mcob_spring_2015_fr

Theodore Martin Hesburgh, Fr. Ted as he is lovingly monikered, was born May 25, 1917, in Syracuse, New York. By age six he had received his calling in life and wanted to become a priest. In 1943, he was ordained a priest of the Congregation of Holy Cross at Sacred Heart Church at The University of Notre Dame. Throughout his life Fr. Ted had a fascination for aviation as well. Years later, Father Ted’s calling and his love of aviation intersected, providing him with the opportunity to be a passenger on an Air Force jet that matched the speed of a bullet.

Considered one of the most influential figures in higher education of the 20th century, Rev. Theodore M. Hesburgh, C.S.C., was invited to deliver commencement addresses around the world. According to Guinness World Records, Father Hesburgh has garnered more honorary degrees than any other person being recognized with 150 from 1954 to 2002. He served popes and U.S. presidents; directed the boards of banks, foundations, and international commissions; and worked globally for peace and justice. Father Ted’s response to his extraordinary life of leadership and service were from his calling to become a Catholic priest.

This February 26 th marks the one-year anniversary of the passing of Father Theodore M. Hesburgh, C.S.C,. He passed at the age of 97 and his life and memory was honored and celebrated on Notre Dame’s campus and beyond in March 2015. As we continue to remember, honor, and celebrate the President emeritus of the University of Notre Dame, where he served for 35 years, our campus and community will host special events in Fr. Ted’s honor.

WNIT will air the television program “Requiem for a Legend: Remembering Rev. Theodore M. Hesburgh, C.S.C.,” at 5:30 p.m. on Sunday, February 21 and again at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, February 26.

All are invited to attend the Father Hesburgh Memorial Concert at 8 p.m. on Friday, February 26 at the Basilica of the Sacred Heart. Music will be performed by the Notre Dame Liturgical Choir, Folk Choir, Celebration Choir, Basilica Schola, and Coro Primavera. Words of remembrance will also be offered by Rev. Austin Collins, C.S.C., religious superior of Congregation of Holy Cross priests and brothers at Notre Dame and a longtime friend of Father Hesburgh. The free concert will be streamed live online here.

Holy Half 2016

holy_half_2016

Annually held in the spring of each year, the Holy Half Marathon tradition began in 2004. A few students wanted to see if they could run 13.1-miles and decided to make a campus race. That year, about eighty runners participated, raising $1,000 for the Louis J. Acompora Foundation. Following the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, proceeds from the consecutive Holy Half Marathons were donated to relief efforts in New Orleans. As the race garnered followers both on campus and nationwide, the number of participants and the amount of money raised for charity continued to grow.

In 2011, the Holy Half turned its attention to the surrounding area of South Bend. The campaign elicited an overwhelmingly positive response from locals, prompting a shift in focus to a new partnership with the adjacent community. From 2011-2014, the Holy Half Marathon raised over $140,000 for various South Bend organizations. In 2014, the race was expanded to include 1,500 runners. For the 2015 race, we are excited to support La Casa de Amistad and St. Margaret’s House.

Now in their twelfth year, The 2016 Holy Half will be held on Saturday, April 9th. Both half marathon (13.1 miles) and 10K (6.2 miles) races are available. The course runs along the beautiful campus of the University of Notre Dame passing iconic attractions including the Golden Dome, Grotto, Touchdown Jesus mural, and lakes. There is a strict cap of 1,500 runners.

The half marathon will begin at 9am. The 10K will begin at 9:15am. The start/finish line is at the Stepan Center, located on the northeast corner of campus.

Raceday parking will be available in the D2 North Lot as well as the Bulla Road Lot. See ‘Parking’ tab for more information.

For more information or to register before the race reaches capacity of 1500 runners, visit the Holy Half Website!
