In the World

As members of an international congregation, we recognize our
obligation and opportunities to develop a world vision and a sense
of global responsibility. A particular concern in all ministries is the establishment of a just society.

The School Sisters of Notre Dame have a special
commitment to helping persons who are poor and
working for justice in the world.

  Towards this end, in 1992, School Sisters of Notre
Dame made a decision to become associated with the United Nations. In 1993 the UN Department of Public Information (DPI) granted accreditation to SSND as a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) associated
with the DPI. We were granted special consultative
status with the Economic and Social Council
(ECOSOC) in 1998.
