Our Mission Your Mission
is to proclaim the good news,
directing our entire lives toward
for which Jesus Christ was sent
for which God calls all.
As Jesus was sent to show
God's love to the world,
we are sent to make Christ,
to make God,
visible by our very being,
by sharing our love, faith, and hope.

Beekeeping shows mercy
Many may not think of beekeeping as a way to share love and kindness with the world, but for Associate Dianne Henke, taking care of bees is an act of mercy. She uses the unity of a beehive to explain how humans can better the world and show compassion to one another. In what ways do you show compassion?
Sending sisters to Austria
Read Sister Carolyn Sur’s reflection on the process of sending two School Sisters of Notre Dame to Austria to teach immigrant and refugee children English. Sisters Jean Greenwald and Helen Plum will spend one to two years in this ministry working with children from the Middle East and Africa. How do you reflect on major life events?
after Louisiana flooding
On Aug. 12, 2016, flooding damaged many communities throughout Louisiana, including those of School Sisters of Notre Dame associates and sisters’ families. Although several months have passed and life is slowly returning to normal for those affected, rebuilding damaged homes and businesses is ongoing, yet communities have remained prayerful and supportive of one another. Have you had to recover from an unexpected disaster? How have you helped others in times of need?
