Bishop O'Connell Speaks to Catholic Athletes for Christ
The Notre Dame Catholic Athletes for Christ Group had a very special guest speaker today, Bishop David M. OConnell, C. M. Bishop O'Connell answered a number of questions asked by the student athletes during the Activity Period meeting. Students asked questions ranging from, "Did you play sports?" to " What was the most spiritually significant moment during your time in the clergy?"
The Bishop, who brought Catholic Athletes for Christ to the Diocese, spoke of the importance of faith in all aspects of life including athletics. He shared personal stories and struggles with the group and spoke of how his faith brought him through those difficult times. His talk was inspiring and thought provoking. Notre Dame is grateful for the time he shared with us.
