The Notre Dame trail, the long walk from Vincennes to South Bend to commemorate the University’s 175th anniversary finished Saturday.

 

Most of the 32 pilgrims that make up the core group are Notre Dame Alumni who returned to Indiana from across the country to participate in the historic walk.

The 300 miles recreate the walk Father Edward Sorin and his followers took in 1842 to found the University.
