Notre Dame students giving back through 'Catholics vs. Corona' t-shirts

NOW: Notre Dame students giving back through ’Catholics vs. Corona’ t-shirts


ST. JOSEPH COUNTY, Ind. –– A group of Notre Dame students decided to give back to the community through a different variation of the historic "Catholics vs. Convicts" t-shirts. Their concept is "Catholics vs. Corona". 

The four friends got permission to use the concept from a couple Notre Dame women's lacrosse players, who originally had the idea. 

Since then, the students have sold over 100 shirts, and they have 500 more ready for order. All the proceeds will go to the United Way COVID-19 Community Response and Recovery fund. 

“We know there are a lot of people who are having really big problems with this crisis and that relatively, we are all lucky to be where we are," group member Mitch Johnson said. "So we kinda just wanted to take this opportunity to help those people who are struggling more than we are."

You can find more information on how to support their cause on catholicsvscorona.com.

In 1988, defending national champions Miami was undefeated and ranked #1 when they took on undefeated #4 Notre Dame in South Bend.

That game is memorable, not only because the Irish beat the Canes, but because of a tongue-in-cheek T-shirt that read “Catholics vs Convicts”.

Our son Mitchell and his friends have taken a page from that history and written a new chapter by creating this nearly identical shirt that reads “Catholics vs. Corona”!

The shirts cost $19.95 and all net proceeds go to the United Way of St. Joseph County COVID-19 Relief Fund and the general United Way COVID-19 Relief Fund.

Please consider supporting this cause and buy a shirt. 👍🏼
