NOTRE DAME, Ind., Aug. 20 -- The University of Notre Dame issued the following news:
The University of Notre Dame's Office of Campus Ministry has launched (http://campusministry.nd.edu/) a new smartphone application accessible to all Apple and Android devices. The free app, which is available from the Apple Store and Android Market by searching "Notre Dame Daily Faith," includes a calendar of campus liturgies, meetings of prayer groups, performances of sacred music, retreats, lectures and seminars.
"ND Daily Faith is the first app of its kind at Notre Dame," said Rev. Jim King, C.S.C. (http://campusministry.nd.edu/about/staff/administrative-staff/fr-jim-king-c-s-c/), director of Campus Ministry. "Over the past year, we've made several updates that we hope will make us more effective in communicating with our students. We have a new website, a weekly e-newsletter and now an app, too. With these tools, we are creating new opportunities for students to connect with us and continue their prayer lives on campus."
ND Faith enables searches for events by topic or by department. In addition to Campus Ministry, the app includes information from the Congregation of Holy Cross (http://www.holycrossusa.org/), the Center for Social Concerns (http://socialconcerns.nd.edu/about/), the Center for Ethics and Culture (http://ethicscenter.nd.edu/home), the Institute for Church Life (http://icl.nd.edu/), the Department of Theology (http://theology.nd.edu/), the Alliance for Catholic Education (http://ace.nd.edu/), Multicultural Student Programs and Services (http://msps.nd.edu/) and the Basilica of the Sacred Heart (campusministry.nd.edu/basilica-of-the-sacred-heart/). The app also enables users to schedule reminders for upcoming events and to access prayers and gospel reflections of the day by means of the Notre Dame Alumni Association's Faith ND (faith.nd.edu/s/1210/faith/start.aspx?gid=609&pgid=61) website.
