Sacred Places of Notre Dame: Cedar Grove Cemetery
Articles


(gentle music) – My name is Theresa Rice, and my hometown is South Bend, Indiana. I’m a senior majoring in theology and the program of liberal studies, and I live in Pasquerilla West Hall. A place on campus that is sacred to me is the Cedar Grove Cemetery. My grandparents are
buried in this cemetery and I think of them every
time I walk past it. I’ll sometimes walk down
Notre Dame Ave back to campus after I babysit for a
family who lives nearby, and when I get to the cemetery, I’ll turn in and the road
past the gardener’s shed until I see my grandparents’ graves. I pause for a few moments in
front of the graves to reflect, to pray for their souls and the souls of all I’ve loved who have died. It is a very somber place but
also familiar and peaceful. When I’m there, I feel
very connected to my family and the Catholic faith that we share. In that place, I feel like I
can find my breath and focus. And as I leave, I feel
both hopeful and peaceful. I always feel much more grounded and somehow as if I’ve taken a
break from my time on campus. I’m energized by a sense
of calm and gratitude and feel ready to return
to campus, refreshed. In this season of Advent, how can the memories of our
loved ones help us prepare our hearts for the coming of Christ?
