The Story of Notre Dame
Brother Aidan's Extracts

DEPENDENCE, 1845: (Contract.)

"The Right Reverend Bishop de la Hailandiere of Vincennes approves of the priests, the Brothers, and the Sisters of Holy Cross for his diocese and permits them to follow their constitutions. They will remain dependent on Notre Dame de Sainte Croix by considering the Ordinary as local superior. The bishop donated the property of Notre Dame du Lac on condition that a college be maintained. He will support the demands for help that will be made to the Propagation of the Faith for the establishments in his diocese on condition that the use of the funds be made known to him." "On the King's Highway", p. 146
