Welcome to the congregational website of the School Sisters of Notre Dame. We are an international Roman Catholic congregation of vowed women religious.

Our Mission

Our mission is to proclaim the good news as School Sisters of Notre Dame, directing our entire lives toward that oneness for which Jesus Christ was sent. As he was sent to show the Father’s love to the world, we are sent to make Christ visible by our very being, by sharing our love, faith, and hope.

You Are Sent, Constitution of the School Sisters of Notre Dame, 4
