The Shrine had the joy to welcome two new groups of pilgrims that came to learn more about Blessed Basil Moreau last week: students from the University of Notre Dame du Lac (Indiana, USA), accompanied by Fr. John De Riso, csc, former rector of the Shrine, as well as employees from the University, accompanied by Fr. Gerry Olinger, csc.

The University of Notre Dame was founded by the fathers and brothers of Holy Cross in 1842, under the leadership of Fr. Edward Sorin. Pilgrims discovered the Shrine, of course, but also the Saint Julian Cathedral and the old city of Le Mans, the Solitude of the Savior, Laigné en Belin (birthplace of Fr. Moreau) and Ahuillé (birthplace of Fr. Sorin), before going to Chartres and Paris to continue their pilgrimage.
