We are sent in the power of the Spirit to continue Christ’s mission,
to be transformed and to transform our world,
bringing all to that oneness for which Jesus Christ was sent.

Only by love will we win the love of the children and draw their hearts to God.
Blessed M. Theresa, letter 4405
Where love, there is God and where God, there is heaven – in our hearts, in our homes.
Blessed M. Theresa, letter 949
Answering the Call
The congregation of the School Sisters of Notre Dame came to life
when God’s call found an answer in the hearts of people
strong in faith, farseeing in vision, and courageous in action. …
Their action was inspired by an apostolic spirituality
destined to shape their own lives and profoundly affect those of many others. …
The congregation continues today in the mysterious interaction
of divine call and human response.
You Are Sent, Origins of Our Congregation
Do you hear God’s call in your heart?
What needs do you see in our world?
How will you respond?
