The Future is Now?
The first year of Fr. Jenkins' presidency, the priests at Notre Dame are all wearing clericals again. This is ironic, because Fr. Jenkins himself was seldom a clericals-wearing sort of priest!
There's more. Word on the Quad is that the Holy Cross priests at Notre Dame are set to re-institute their cassock-like habit within the next 2-3 years.
The times, they are a'changing.
This picture is NOT of Notre Dame priests; we randomly Google-image searched the word "cassock."
A point of clarification: as stated above, they're not full-time in their cassock-like habits NOW. There's simply a rumor that they MIGHT be, in a few year's time. But it seems they're wearing standard collar/blackshirt clericals more now than in the past.
The younger fathers DO where their cassock-habit liberally on Feast days, like Our Lady of Sorrows (their patroness) or at Easter, etc.
