Basilica celebrates 125th anniversary

first_imgIn the beginning, the University of Notre Dame was a log chapel alongside a lake in northern Indiana. Following the chapel’s construction, a church was built, and this same church became the Basilica of the Sacred Heart, which celebrates its 125th anniversary this year.  Sacred Heart Church, now the Basilica of the Sacred Heart, was consecrated on August 15, 1888. Fr. Peter Rocca, rector of the Basilica, said the building’s exterior has not changed since that day in 1888, although it took four additional years to complete the spire and bell tower.  “Fr. Sorin was very progressive in terms of education theory, but he was very conservative in his tastes,” Rocca said. “The bells in the tower were made in France, and all the stained glass windows came from France. In the Basilica, we have maybe the largest collection of 19th century French stained glass in one place.” The original Sacred Heart Church was 90 feet long by 38 feet wide, Rocca said. Because the original structure was torn down as the second one was constructed, he said the two represent a continuity of communities although the exterior building changed.  When the history is traced back to the 1847 origins, the current Basilica is the oldest church built in North America by the Congregation of Holy Cross, according to Rocca. Acknowledging its historical significance and lasting vitality, Pope John Paul II declared the church a basilica on Jan. 17, 1992.  “Basilica is an honorary title given to a church for a number of reasons,” Rocca said. “First, it has to have great historical significance… and another reason would be because it’s a place of pilgrimage. We usually have 100,000 people visit the Basilica each year.  Thirdly, usually a church that is designated a basilica is a living, vibrant community of faith, and our Basilica is a place where worship is celebrated regularly.  “Finally, a church that has been dedicated a basilica should be beautiful and well taken care of. It’s no doubt that the Basilica of the Sacred Heart is one of the most beautiful churches around.” The designation as basilica followed a 14-month multi-million dollar renovation financed by former University trustee Thomas Coleman, Rocca said.  “[During this renovation], all the frescos were redone and all the stained glass windows were cleaned,” he said. “The church received new lighting, air conditioning, carpeting and a whole new slate roof.  “It was especially important that those paintings be restored because many of them had been covered with dust and dirt and incense smoke and had become dull. They were redone using the same method used in the Sistine Chapel to restore Michaelangelo’s frescoes.”  Rocca said the completion of the spire with the bell tower in 1892 represented the fulfillment of one of Fr. Sorin’s dreams. “One of the reasons Fr. Sorin wanted a nice bell tower was because he had been buying all these bells in the 1850s. He loved bells,” Rocca said. “These bells were made in France, and the first Sacred Heart Church had two wooden towers that could not support bells.  “For the longest time, he was collecting these bells from France, and he built a giant black crate in front of the Main Building to hold the bells until he could build a proper tower for them.”  The bells currently housed in the spire of the Basilica are the same ones acquired by Sorin, Rocca said.  “There are 23 bells up there plus one additional bell that weighs eight tons,” he said. “The 23 form what is called a carillon, which means the bells can play carols or tunes. We believe that this is the oldest carillon in North America.” Rocca said the Basilica of the Sacred Heart is not synonymous with Sacred Heart Parish, which is housed in the crypt of the building and is a “totally separate operation” with its own pastor and programming. The only person buried in the basilica proper is former University president John Francis Cardinal O’Hara, who led Notre Dame before World War II, he said. O’Hara served in the military archdiocese and went on to be the bishop of Buffalo, New York, and archbishop of Philadelphia, Penn. “The story goes that the people of Philadelphia loved Cardinal O’Hara and… they wanted him to be buried in the crypt of the cathedral in Philadelphia,” Rocca said. “But Cardinal O’Hara wanted to be buried with his fellow Holy Cross priests and brothers in our Holy Cross cemetery here.  “Apparently, after he died they realized there was a Church law that forbade cardinals from being buried underground, so he could not be buried in the community cemetery. Instead, they buried him in the then-Sacred Heart Church.” Though the true 125th anniversary occurred on August 15, Rocca said a celebration was held on August 16th to commemorate the original consecration while still observing the Feast of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary on the 15th. A “pick-up choir” made up of mostly past and current members of Notre Dame’s liturgical choir sang for the Mass celebrated by Holy Cross Bishop Daniel Jenky of the diocese of Peoria, Ill., he said.   “Following the Mass, there was a grand reception for everyone in the rotunda of the Main Building,” Rocca said. “Following the reception, there was a dinner for about 90 invited guests on the 14th floor of the Hesburgh Library, which was the perfect location because it has an incredible view of the side of the Basilica, the same view it would have been so long ago.” Contact Ann Marie Jakubowski at ajakubo1@nd.edulast_img read more

The Association of Landlords from Cres is organizing the first public forum on the amount of the flat tax

first_imgThe deadline within which cities and municipalities must make a decision on the amount of the lump sum is January 31, 2019. RELATED NEWS: Also, the question arises as to what over 100.000 renters do in their local communities with the organization of the same public forums and the opening of a dialogue with the City Council (representatives of the local population) who make the decision on the amount of the lump sum. This directly affects and affects the business of private renters, and if there is now no dialogue and the need to openly discuss the amount of the lump sum, then the problem is in the renters themselves. When the decision is made on the amount of the lump sum per bed, then it is too late to “Facebook smart” and call for the “destruction” of private accommodation. It is primarily the responsibility of private landlords to be actively involved in the discussion and open a dialogue with City representatives. Today, starting at 18:30 pm in the Rector’s Palace on Cres, the first public forum will be held on the amount of the lump sum per bed, ie accommodation unit. WITH THE ENTRY IN THE NEW YEAR, THE RESIDENCE TAX WAS INCREASED The law stipulates that the lump sum may not be less than HRK 150 or more than HRK 1.500.

The former Arsenal goalkeeper revealed that he’d also been forced to fork out on presents for his team-mates, after being late for training.

FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Wojciech Szczesny has revealed that Juventus team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo was made to buy the entire  Juventus squad iMacs after his 2018 red card against Valencia. On his Champions League debut for the Old Lady, the Portuguese superstar was reduced to tears after being red carded for pulling the hair of opposition defender Jeison Murillo. Juventus went on to win 2-0 anyway, but boss Massimiliano Allegri’s disciplinary rules at the club stated that following a misdemeanour, the perpetrator must buy all of his team-mates a gift as an apology. Despite superstar status, CR7 was not above this rule, although he tried to wriggle out of it. Juve’s No7 was so incensed at the decision, that for two months he refused to take his punishment, insisting that he’d done nothing wrong. But eventually, Allegri calmly showed who was boss – and Ronaldo’s team-mates all ended up with new iMac computers.Advertisementlast_img read more

SDMS Coach arrested on charges of possession of child pornography

first_imgLawrenceburg, IN-On Friday a Dillsboro man turned himself in at the Dearborn County Jail on charges of possession of child pornography after a warrant was issued for his arrest following an investigation by Indiana State Police Detectives with the Indiana Crimes Against Children Unit.The investigation began in May 2019 when the Indiana State Police were contacted after an internet tip was provided to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.  During the course of the investigation, detectives determined that Karl Hoffrogge, age 20, Dillsboro, Indiana had requested and received nude pictures from a juvenile female through a social media site in January and February 2019.  According to officials, when the offense occurred, Hoffrogge was an assistant wrestling coach at South Dearborn Middle School in Aurora, Indiana where the victim was a student.After reviewing the investigation, the Dearborn County Prosecutor’s Office issued a warrant for Hoffrogge on one count of possession of child pornography, class 6 felony, and two counts of attempted possession of child pornography, class 6 felonies.Hoffrogge was incarcerated at the Dearborn County Law Enforcement Center pending his initial appearance in the Dearborn County Circuit Court.last_img read more

Castro on top as McIlroy finds form

first_img Woods, who replaced McIlroy at the top of the rankings earlier this year, had never had a bogey-free round in 55 previous attempts in the tournament, but at least carded a five-under 67, his first sub-70 opening round in the £6.1million event, which offers more than £1million to the winner. McIlroy had reaped the benefits of a conservative approach after missing the cut in his previous three appearances in golf’s ‘unofficial fifth major’ with a scoring average of 74. Starting from the 10th, McIlroy carded five birdies in a back nine of 31, including at the treacherous par-three 17th after a superb approach to seven feet on the island green. He could only find one more birdie coming home – pitching to two feet on the par-five second – but also saved par from short of the green on the fifth and from a greenside bunker on the eighth. With scoring conditions almost perfect for the early starters, Steve Stricker, Casey Wittenberg and Hunter Mahan all finished five under and were joined by Woods, Webb Simpson and Ryan Palmer. Sergio Garcia and Padraig Harrington were five off the lead after rounds of 68, while Lee Westwood matched the 69 of Masters champion Adam Scott. The most remarkable round of the day came from Westwood’s Ryder Cup team-mate Peter Hanson, who started from the 10th with a double bogey and took eight on the 18th, but also had seven birdies and an eagle in a two-under 70. Vijay Singh, who on Wednesday filed a lawsuit against the PGA over its handling of his anti-doping case, finished two over after a 74, one shot better than Ian Poulter who wrote on Twitter: “Not the best day in the office. Followed by a urine sample in a cup for our drug friends. It’s ok I haven’t taken any horn juice lately haha.” That was a reference to the deer antler spray Singh admitted to taking in January which was said to contain a banned substance. Castro carded an eagle and seven birdies in a nine-under-par 63 which matched the course record set by Fred Couples in 1992 and equalled by Greg Norman two years later. However, world number two Rory McIlroy shot a flawless 66 to share second place with former Masters champion Zach Johnson, while Tiger Woods was set to do the same until his only bogey of the day on the 18th after failing to get up and down from over the green. World number 267 Roberto Castro was the surprise leader after the first round of the prestigious Players Championship, but the top two players in the rankings were ominously poised at Sawgrass.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Cricket News Patience could be key in fickle English weather, says Ajinkya Rahane

first_imgBirminghan: India’s attack will have to show patience to take 20 wickets and in the fickle English weather, it could be a virtue for the batsmen as well, Vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane said on Monday.The five-Test series starts with the first match in Birmingham on Wednesday.“There is always help for bowlers in England, but that doesn’t mean it is easier for the bowlers. They need to be patient and bowl in the good areas. They have to back their own skills instead of trying to take wickets from both ends” Rahane said.During a media interaction two days prior to the series opener, the batsman added, “If one bowler can play the support role well then it will lead to wickets. To bowl patiently and on spot is crucial to success.“It is a great opportunity for the bowlers to prove that we can take 20 wickets in a Test match consistently, like we had done in South Africa. Nobody expected us to take 20 wickets in all three Test matches.“At the same time they should not put extra pressure on themselves and they should just look to enjoy the moment. They need to back themselves and believe that our bowling unit is the best in the world.”As far as his team’s bowling attack was concerned, Rahane was brimming with optimism, despite the absence of strike bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar.“Our pace bowlers are very experienced. Mohammed Shami and Umesh were here in 2014 as well. They’ve been doing so well for us, not only in India but outside as well. In South Africa, we got all 60 wickets (during the Tests) and our fast bowlers bowled really well.“It is a challenge to bowl in England but I am really confident about them – not only Umesh and Shami but also Ishant, who came here and played some county games.“We have Jasprit Bumrah as well. We have an attack that can disrupt opponents. But yes, it will be a challenge for them to bowl patiently and bowl in the right areas for a long period of time,” he added.India had an intense practice session at Edgbaston after their extra practice session on Sunday was washed out owing to heavy rains. Rahane said that they have had ample practice and the rest will come down to mindset.“In England, patience is the key. It depends on the weather—if it’s sunny it’s good to bat, but if it gets cloudy then definitely it’s good for the bowlers. As a batting unit, I feel that challenging yourself and backing your own game rather than copying someone else is important.“If you’re set, try to play a big innings. If the weather changes, it’s important for the batsman to hold back, respect the bowler and respect the conditions. If you’re set here, you should really make it count,” he said.With his team aiming to win their first series in England since 2007, Rahane stressed on the need to have better communication.“You have to communicate well. In this weather, in these conditions, communication will be very crucial. If someone is really set, batting on 70 or 80, they will have to hold back if the weather changes.“They will have to respect the conditions and bowlers. From both teams, bowlers are going to bowl well. As a batsman you should respect that. Acceptance will be the key.”The Indian vice-captain had enjoyed the tour of England in 2014, when he had scored a match-winning hundred on a green top at Lord’s and finished with 299 runs in five Tests with two other half-centuries.“We were here in 2014 and we know what it takes to play good cricket here. For us, we want to play good cricket rather than think about the result. If you think about the result you put pressure on yourself.“This time we just want to express ourselves. Guys are in good shape. Personally I enjoy those challenges of playing abroad. You know here in England the ball does a bit, in Australia there’s bounce, and again in New Zealand the ball does a bit.“My mind is in the present, one match at a time. I’m really looking forward to this series,” he said.India have a few selection calls to make with Kuldeep Yadav making a strong case during the limited-overs’ leg for inclusion in this Test.“We are not worried at all as both are really quality batsmen. It just takes one good innings to get into your rhythm. We all back them. Ultimately the coach and the captain will take the decision.“As far as I’m concerned they both are really quality batsmen and are batting really well in the nets. It just takes one innings,” Rahane said.“I’m not sure about the combination,? he said, talking about Kuldeep.“He is definitely an x-factor in our team. He bowled really well in the ODIs and T20Is. We will have to see how the wickets will be like tomorrow and day after.“We don’t have to forget R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja. They’ve been doing really well for us. Ashwin especially with his batting and bowling, he’s been doing really well,” he added.Last but not the least, there has been a lot of debate about leg spinner Adil Rashid’s call-up to the England squad for this first Test. Rahane said that they fully expected his inclusion.“No not at all (surprised). He bowled well against us in the ODIs. He’s a very good bowler. Wrist spinners, we all know, they are wicket takers. When we played our practice game, it was like playing in Mumbai or Chennai.“He’s a quality spinner. We don’t want to take anyone lightly, be it Adil or Moeen Ali or any of their fast bowlers. We want to focus on our game,” Rahane signed off. For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.last_img read more
