On Monday, Fr. Damian Hils of the Diocese of Covington visited his alma mater of Notre Dame along with his family. Fr. Hils is a student of dogmatic theology at the Angelicum and a fellow resident at the Casa Santa Maria.
We concelebrated the 11:30 basilica Mass, enjoyed a simple lunch at Corby Hall and then took in the great view from the same house's front porch for a bit.
Fr. Hils graduated from Notre Dame in 1987 with his master's degree in medieval history. Now serving in the Diocese of Covington, he previously served in North Dakota where he founded St. Gianna's Maternity Home, a Christian house for expecting or young mothers in need.
