Rev. Jim Connelly, C.S.C., associate professor emeritus of history, will present “Brothers of Holy Cross: 1820-2020, from 4 to 1,000,” on Tuesday, March 17, at 7:15 p.m., in the Brian Doyle Auditorium in Dundon-Berchtold Hall. Light refreshments will be served after the lecture.
Fr. Connelly’s lecture will celebrate the bicentennial of the establishment of the Brothers of Saint Joseph, a group of young men formed into a teaching community in 1820 by Fr. Jacques Dujarié. In 1835, Fr. Basil Moreau took direction of the Brothers of Saint Joseph and, following his vision of starting a new religious community modeled on the Holy Family, united his auxiliary priests and the Brothers of St. Joseph in 1837 to form the Congregation of Holy Cross.
