Serving the Church

Serving the Church

University of Dallas alumni serve the Catholic Church in more than 30 states across the U.S.

Serving the Catholic Church is something we have been committed to since our founding in 1956. Not only do our alumni serve as chaplains, youth ministers, brothers and sisters and priests, but there are even eleven bishops who claim UD as their alma mater.
