Patrick Gouker

Name: Patrick Gouker
School: University of Notre Dame
Year: Junior
Major: Theology (with a second major in French)
Favorite Saint: (Unfair question, there are too many) St. Augustine

A junior at the University of Notre Dame, Patrick loves his Home Under the Dome. Studying theology, he is always quick to jump into the latest theological debate on campus. Hailing from Mishawaka, Indiana he loves St. Joseph’s Parish in that same city; it is his home. He is also blessed to serve as sacristan of the Basilica of the Sacred Heart. If you have any questions, comments, or input about beautiful churches and beautiful theological works, he is more than happy to discuss these. He can be reached at
