Protecting the Catholic Identity of Notre Dame

Dear Father Jenkins: We write as supporters of Project Sycamore to offer a pledge and to present a request. As you know, Project Sycamore consists of alumni dedicated to the preservation of the Catholic character of Notre Dame. We have joined in this association because of our concern over the degree of secularization that has taken place at Notre Dame over recent years. This phenomenon , as we see it, can be measured in rough but striking fashion by the precipitous decline in the proportion of Catholics members of the faculty, and its pernicious influence has become apparent through events such as The Vagina Monologues that are pervasively hostile to the teachings and traditions of the Church. Our reasons for these views are described in detail in the Project


The purpose of Project Sycamore is to provide to Notre Dame alumni concerned about the preservation of the Catholic identity of the University with a source of information, a means of communication, and a collective voice.
