SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — The University of Notre Dame is preparing to celebrate the 125th anniversary of the Basilica of the Sacred Heart.

A special Mass is scheduled for 4 p.m. Aug. 16, followed by a reception. Bishop Daniel Jenky of Peoria, Ill., who studied theology at Notre Dame, is scheduled to preside.
