Class of Echo 18 is Announced!

The McGrath Institute’s Echo Program at the University of Notre Dame is delighted to announce and welcome 31 new students who have made the commitment to serve the Church, engage in integrative formation, and work toward their Master of Arts in Theology for the next two years. Now the largest class in Echo’s history, our students will pursue summer coursework through Notre Dame’s Department of Theology while serving in ministerial/teaching roles in parishes, Catholic high schools, and middle schools during the other nine months of the year. These students will serve in the Arch/Dioceses of Atlanta, Camden, Fall River, Galveston-Houston, Kalamazoo, Knoxville, Milwaukee, Newark, Scranton, and St. Petersburg.

We have listed the names and the colleges/universities of the incoming class of Echo 18 below and are grateful for their ‘yes’ to learn and serve the Church!
