Dear Friends of the School Sisters of Notre Dame, As you know, a new immigration policy implemented by the administration of the White House in May has led to a significant increase in migrant children being separated from their families.
On a sunny Sunday afternoon on June 10, former students of Notre Dame Academy in Waterdown, eagerly arrived with yearbooks in hand, wearing their graduation rings and Notre Dame Academy pins. Teachers greeted the now, adult women, and, for some, checked name tags.
This year I can claim that I have been a School Sister of Notre Dame for 65 years. For over 50 years I worked as a “House Sister.” So now that I am retired people ask, “As an SSND – what did you teach?” I answer “The Sisters had to eat, too.”
