Fr. Ted Said…Golden Is Thy Fame – Celebrating 50 Years of Undergraduate Women at the University of Notre Dame: Jessica Pedroza ’17

Celebrate the invaluable contributions of our women students and graduates, both at Notre Dame and beyond, in their communities, our nation, the Church and the world.  Listen to stories that share the role women have played at Notre Dame in the past and present and consider ways we may continue our vital calling of becoming an ever more inclusive community in the future. Fr. Ted’s voice, photos and words will be included.  We’ll have speakers representing the decades — from the 1970’s until today!
