I am sincerely excited to announce the move and promotion of Craig Horvath from an Associate Regional Director with the East team to a Regional Director of Athletics Advancement. As you know, Craig has been a strong contributor to the East team in terms of production, camaraderie, and support. In his new role, he will continue to build relationships for Our Lady’s University specific to our Athletics needs and mission. Despite his golf game and inability to use his left driving to the hoop, I am confident he is going to be greatly successful in this role.
The announcement of his regional assignment will be shortly forthcoming, while his official start date with Athletics Advancement will be next Friday, May 1st.
Please join me in congratulating Craig as he takes this next step in serving Notre Dame.
The Mothers of Notre Dame Mass is an opportunity for our Notre Dame community to gather and celebrate the mothers and women of Notre Dame in the month of May and to honor Our Blessed Lady. Masses across the country will be celebrated bringing the Notre Dame community together in prayer and inviting all to join in this worship. We encourage inviting the newly admitted families to welcome them to the Notre Dame family.
My deepest thanks to the parents who have offered to coordinate this Mass with their parish, to the pastors and priests who have graciously agreed to include the Notre Dame community in their parish for this Mass, and to the Notre Dame Clubs that have also coordinated the Mass and receptions in their region as well as communicated information about the Mass to their membership. This is the fourth year the Notre Dame Parents Program has encouraged this tribute to Our Lady, our University, and our Notre Dame mothers and women.
This year’s Mothers of Notre Dame Mass which will take place in Michigan City on May 3. Sue Callaghan from the Stayer Center has offered to host the Mass and lunch at her home. It is so exciting to see this initiative grow! This year there are 16 Masses including one in El Salvador and one in Venezuela!

CANDIDE, based on Voltaire’s cynical, realistic and comic 1759 novella, follows the amazing trials and tribulations of a ceaselessly optimistic young man as he makes his way through life. In the half-century since it was composed, Leonard Bernstein’s brilliant and joyous adaptation has been hailed as a landmark of American music and is a favorite in opera communities around the world.
