All School Mass takes place at Notre Dame

Posted:

Nearly 5,000 Catholic school students and educators packed the Purcell Pavilion, Wednesday, for the annual All Schools Mass.  The Mass focused on this year's Catholic Schools Week theme of "Catholic Schools, Communities of Faith, Knowledge, and Service."

The Mass was lead by Kevin C Rhoades, Bishop of the Diocese of Fort-Wayne-South Bend.  Bishop Rhoades was very excited to speak to the large gathering of students.  "To have all the schools of the South Bend area come together," Rhoades said, "twenty catholic schools, over four-thousand young people, it is such an opportunity to be able to pray together, to be able to preach to all of them together, to me it is always wonderful."

Students participated as altar servers, gift bearers, readers, and as members of the liturgical processions for the event.
