Clubs

The Theology Club aims to create an opportunity for students to engage in intellectual and spiritual reflection on God and theological topics so as to grow in faith. 

This group is led from a Catholic perspective, but students need not be of any particular faith tradition to join. Students from all majors and colleges are welcome. The club hosts a number of events throughout the course of the academic year, including guided art discussions at the Snite Museum, movie watches, lectures from Theology Department professors, and much more.

In addition, it sponsors the all-new Zossima Project, a commission created to write and publish articles on liturgical theology in such publications as the Irish Rover and the Observer. For more information or to be added to our email list, please email theoclub@nd.edu.

Majors Advisory Council

The Majors Advisory Council (MAC) is comprised of current Theology majors and minors who have been chosen based on their engagement with the program to serve as an advisory board for faculty and staff regarding the direction of the undergraduate program.


2019-2020 MAC Members

Hope 200x267

My name is Hope, I am a theology major (and wannabe FTT major in my heart) from Johnson City, Tennessee, living in Lyons Hall. I transferred to Notre Dame after taking two gap years following my freshman year at the College of Charleston—I spent a year working at a barbecue restaurant and visiting convents as I discerned religious life and the next year completing a year of service in Los Angeles. I am also a member of Notre Dame’s premier* (*only) improv team, the Humor Artists, and work for Campus Ministry! Though I transferred with the intent already to study theology, I have been utterly blown away by the care, dedication, and intellectual and spiritual depth of the professors, students, and department. I am so grateful to be studying here at Our Lady’s university and look forward to serving this community further! “No one ponders God without loving God” —William of St-Thierry

 

Noelle Johnson 200x271

My name is Noelle, and I am a Theology and Physics double major with a philosophy minor from Los Angeles, California.  I developed a love for theology in high school, as I began reading books and listening to talks to learn more about my Catholic Faith in order to defend it and share it with my friends.  I have a wide range of theological interests, including Biblical studies, faith and reason, the work of Benedict XVI and John Henry Newman, and moral theology. I also enjoy learning about the philosophy of science.  On campus, I reside in Lewis Hall, am the President of Notre Dame Right to Life, and am a member of the club figure skating team.  I am so excited to be a member of the MAC and help support the community which welcomed me from the moment I arrived at Notre Dame!


 

Elizabeth 200x269

My name is Elizabeth, and I am a junior double majoring in ACMS and Theology. I live in Evansville, IN but consider my hometown to be Huntsville, AL where I attended middle and high school. Though I started as a Biology pre-med student, I decided to explore Theology after much discernment and several major changes. I am grateful to have finally found my passion and hope to pursue it further in graduate school to become a Theology professor. I hope that my time serving in MAC will be an opportunity for fruitful conversations and experiences rooted in Christ!




 

Pierce Lewin

“My name is Pierce Lewin. I’m a philosophy and theology major from Rockville Centre, NY and proud resident of Dunne Hall. For my part, I can think of no better occupation than studying theology. Between the evangelists, mystics, Church fathers, and laymen, there exists an interplay that is, by turns, careful and defiantly indelicate. Tracing such tradition through the centuries, juxtaposed with moments of absolute clarity, is profoundly rewarding work. It is such work that I hope to encourage during my time on the MAC.”
