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.

You Are Sent, Constitution 48

Transforming the world through education

We exclude no one from our concern …

You Are Sent, Constitution 24

Through our ministry, we and those to whom we are sent are mutually enriched.

You Are Sent, Constitution 25

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?

    Thank you for a beautiful and touching sharing of who we, SSND, are and what we are about in MISSION. If I had to discern today I would choose this same life I have lived for over 50 years. I have been blessed over and over and I thank God.
