HERE For You
DOCUMENTING YOUR COVID-19 VACCINE
Notre Dame is working to document COVID-19 vaccination completion within our campus community. Although most students have not yet received the vaccine due to state eligibility requirements, if you have received either the second dose of the Moderna or Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine or a single dose of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine, please upload your vaccination documentation to your University Health Services (UHS) Patient Portal. If you have any questions, please contact the COVID-19 Hotline at 574-634-HERE (4373) or email@example.com.
Submit a question related to the University's COVID-19 response using this form. Questions will be answered at future town hall events and in the weekly Instagram Q&A every Wednesday. All students are welcome to submit a question.

CELEBRATING HOLY WEEK AND EASTER ON CAMPUS
This year's Triduum services (Mass of the Lord's Supper on Holy Thursday, Celebration of the Lord's Passion on Good Friday, and the Easter Vigil on Holy Saturday) will be held in the Purcell Pavilion at the Joyce Center instead of the Basilica of the Sacred Heart to safely accommodate as many members of the campus community as possible.
Attendance will be by assigned, single-seat ticket only. Students will receive an email on Sunday, March 21 from Campus Ministry with a link to reserve a ticket. Tickets will be assigned in the order the requests are received. If you wish to sit near roommates or friends, we encourage you to submit your forms at the same time.
Students are encouraged to celebrate Easter Sunday Mass with their residence hall community and should check with their hall for the schedule. For those who wish to attend Mass at the Basilica, please submit a request using the Basilica’s Easter reservation form which will open at 8 a.m. on Monday, March 22.
This year offers the unique opportunity for students, who under different circumstances may have traveled for Easter, to experience the Triduum and Easter celebrations on campus. Unlike last Easter, when churches were unable to welcome a congregation and all services were virtual, we’re grateful for this opportunity to pray together safely and in-person.
Visit campusministry.nd.edu/holyweek-easter for complete details.
