All Schools Mass honors Eric's Promise

NOTRE DAME, Ind. -- Thousands of local students attended Catholic Mass at Notre Dame on Monday.

The 20th Annual "All Schools Mass" recognizes the importance of faith and education.

The theme this year was "Catholic Schools: Faith. Academics. Service."

"To know that there is that commitment within our community a commitment to these children to let them know how important they are to our faith it really does speak volumes,” said Sean McBride of the Fort Wayne-South Bend Diocese.

After the mass, each school donated a basket of food to St. Vincent de Paul.

It's called Eric’s Promise, in honor of a fallen Marian High School student.
