The University of Notre Dame and the Consulate General of Israel to the Midwest are pleased to present “Building Bridges of Faith,” a photographic depiction of papal visits to the Holy Land. Forty-four photographs of four visits by Blessed Pope Paul VI, Pope Saint John Paul II, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, and Pope Francis are included in the exhibition at the Hesburgh Library on the Notre Dame campus. The exhibit will be on display until December 9, 2017 and is organized by Notre Dame International.
Notre Dame International is aware of the current tension and violence occurring in the Israeli-Palestinian context. Our programs through the Jerusalem Global Gateway and Tantur Ecumenical Institute continue to operate normally.
Scholars from both universities will gather March 12-15 in McKenna Hall to examine the authority and interpretation of the Bible—arguably one of the most disputed topics in the history of ecumenical dialogue.
Tuesdays at Tantur seeks to establish a place for conversation. The program is co-hosted by the Jerusalem Global Gateway and Tantur Ecumenical Institute and nurtures open discussion on topics relevant to the life of Jerusalem and the Holy Land.
The fall session of Tuesdays at Tantur, which spanned from mid-October to the beginning of December, had six sessions.
Notre Dame International is now accepting applications for high school and undergraduate programs for international students.
