Spiritual Riches: A Brief History of University of Dallas's Religious Life, 1956 - 2013
From its inception the University of Dallas has provided a rich reservoir or spiritual resources for its community. The long traditions of Cistercian monks and Dominican Friars and the rich histories of service of the Sisters of St. Mary of Namur and School Sisters of Notre Dame combined with the committed livges of the priests of the Dioceses of North Texas furnished a vibrant mix of insights into the religious life of the Church. The burgeoning lay population of the region provided an energizing, pioneering background for the development of spiritual life at the University. The University motto - love truth and justice - continues to permeate both the intellectual and religious life of the institution.
