Posted on December 23, 2022 by Dina Miller
The holidays are nearly over, but there is still plenty to do in northern Indiana. There are some wonderful winter activities that you need to do as soon as the weather is right (because it might change tomorrow!). There are also traditional events that happen, and we want to make sure you get them on your calendar. Here's our Top 10 list of winter activities, everything from ice to the warm theatre.
University of Notre Dame – Sacred Spaces to Fuel Inspiration
Find your inner peace in the sacred spaces of Notre Dame University, a place where beauty abounds and faith is treasured. Surrounded by acres of breathtaking views, gothic architecture, and intricate outdoor sculptures, Notre Dame is an exquisite escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Modeled after the French shrine where the Virgin Mary appeared to Saint Bernadette in 1858, the Grotto of our Lady of Lourdes is a special place to spend a few quiet moments. Hundreds of students have proposed marriage here; outdoor Masses are celebrated regularly; and the Rosary is prayed every day at 6:45 p.m., every day of the year, rain or shine. Next, look for the spires of the Basilica of the Sacred Heart, step inside, and feel a sense of calm surround you. Take in the stained-glass windows, first installed in 1873, and view cherished artifacts dating back centuries.
