Sacred Heart Parish Center Chapel

Make a retreat with Quinn Retzloff, senior pre-professional studies major from Dayton, Ohio, and reflect on the power of rest in Sacred Heart Parish Chapel.

“As an Anchor Intern with Campus Ministry, my ministerial work guides my spiritual life. The meaning I find at this chapel ties into my greater being as a student at Notre Dame and enables me to see my work with my fellow students as a true ministry, filling my cup to spill over unto others. It’s a space for a spiritual reset when I experience uncertainty or a place of solemnity when I feel most happy.”

So this Advent season, what are the places that fill your life with greater meaning? Where can you fill your spiritual cup to overflowing so that you may continue in service of others?
