ND Christmas Ornament

Since 1993 the Notre Dame Alumni Association has designed and produced the official University Christmas ornament. Manufactured in the United States, this annual collectible features a famous University landmark and is crafted in brass and plated in 24K gold with the year engraved on the back. Each ornament comes with its own unique packaging and special card that describes the history of each landmark.  Many alumni, parents and friends look forward to obtaining each year’s ornament and many have their own “Notre Dame” Christmas tree to display their personal collection.

2013 Ornament

The 2013 Notre Dame Christmas ornament is pictured.
The 2013 University ornament features the statue of Father William Corby, C.S.C., that stands near the Basilica of the Sacred Heart.

The statue — a replica of the one erected in 1910 at Gettysburg by Irish Brigade veterans—depicts Father Corby giving the troops of the Irish Brigade General Absolution at the Battle of Gettysburg in 1863, 150 years ago.

This annual collectible is produced in striking three-dimensional detail, crafted in brass and plated in part in 24K gold with the year engraved on the back. Made in the United States, this year's ornament is the 21st in the series offered by the Alumni Association. Proceeds benefit the Alumni Association's community service and academic programs.

The ornament is available online through the Irish Shop.
