Pictures of the visit of the University of Notre Dame Liturgical Choir

On Monday, March 13, the members of the University of Notre Dame Liturgical Choir (Indiana, USA), accompanied by their director, Dr. Andrew McShane, his assistant, Dr. Jonathan Hehn, and Father Brian Ching, csc, visited the village of Ahuillé, birthplace of Father Edouard Sorin, and the village of Laigné, birthplace of Father Basile Moreau. They then gave a concert at the Shrine, before hosting the 6pm Mass.

The next day, the singers returned for a guided tour of the Shrine, followed by Mass around the tomb of Basile Moreau, before going to the Sainte-Croix High School to have lunch with the students and give a concert in the chapel of the lycée.
In the afternoon, Sister Jacqueline Bréchotte, msc, led the guided tour of La Solitude, before the group went down the hill to visit the Holy Cross cemetery and the old city of Mans.
