It’s official: Former Senator Joe Donnelly has been sworn in as our country’s newest ambassador.
The Indiana Democrat and Notre Dame alum, who lost his seat to Mike Braun in 2018, was sworn in Tuesday as the new ambassador to The Vatican.
University of Notre Dame President The Reverend John Jenkins gave a blessing to Donnelly as he was sworn in to represent the U.S. in The Holy See. The U.S. Senate approved Donnelly last month after President Biden nominated him in October.
Donnelly served most recently as a professor of the practice at Notre Dame, teaching courses in American politics, public policy, and leadership.
