Directional Statement 24th General Chapter
The directional statement was the result of a congregation-wide consultation before the 24th General Chapter and intense dialogue and prayerful reflection during the Chapter. Part of the mandate of the general council which was elected during the Chapter is to lead the congregation in implementing the Spirit-inspired direction set by the Chapter members.
Love Gives Everything*
We, School Sisters of Notre Dame, direct our entire lives toward that oneness for which Jesus Christ was sent. At this critical turning point in the sacred history of creation and humanity, we have heard our deep desire to trust and dare (YAS, C 4).
The Triune God impels us into the heart of the world to be women of peace, hope, and love. In the spirit of Blessed M. Theresa and Mother M. Caroline, we, the living community, continue to develop our charism according to You Are Sent (YAS, Prologue).
*Blessed M. Theresa Gerhardinger, writings # 1.
