Celebrating Holy Week

April 18, 2019

Students, faculty and staff enjoyed a morning walk to our downtown place of worship, Cathedral Basilica of St. Joseph for a Holy Week service featuring a recreation of the Stations of the Cross. Ms. Quiazon, director of campus ministry, and senior Isabel Solorio presided over the service through which seniors shared their reflections on condemnation, compassion, cruelty and courage.

Notre Dame’s diverse student community is filled with different talents, skills and passions. The artistic talent of two of these students, Annie Chang ‘20 and Manasa Sundaram '20, is being recognized by the San Jose Downtown Foundation, who chose their artwork for their Downtown Doors project from a record 200+ submissions from 22 different schools.

Juniors Shruthi Sridhar and Shreya Garg were awarded second and third place in the Amgen Bay Area BioGENEius Challenge, the premior competition for high school students that recognizes outstanding research and innovation in the biotechnology field.

We invite you to join us as we gather in support of tuition assistance and program development. Our annual event will be held May 4 at The Tech Museum in downtown San Jose. Tickets and additional information are available here.
