How does one become an SSND Associate?Associates

If you are interested in becoming an SSND Associate, you may begin by expressing your interest to Peggy Ann Russell (prussell@amssnd.org) our Directors of Associates, or to any SSND or SSND Associate.

You will receive a letter with additional information, including the names of those who coordinate the SSND Associate gatherings in your geographic area and an explanation of the application and preparation process.

Once you have read this information, you may contact a coordinator in your area with additional questions or to begin the application process.
Everyone begins as a Pre-Associate and spends a period of time working with an SSND or SSND Associate to deepen her/his own prayer and spirituality and to learn about the charism, spirituality, heritage, mission and ministry of the School Sisters of Notre Dame.  Pre-associates are also invited to attend Associate gatherings in their area. 

During this time the Pre-Associate and Sisters have the opportunity to develop a relationship which will help them to discern together if the Pre-Associate is called to a covenant relationship as an SSND Associate.
