About Us

We are teachers, administrators and counselors; we are librarians, lawyers and accountants. We are nurses, facilitators and therapists; we are ministers, volunteers and women of prayer. Regardless of where we come from or how we serve, we are all proud members of the Atlantic-Midwest Province.

Our Mission is to proclaim the good news as School Sisters of Notre Dame, directing our entire lives toward that oneness for which Jesus Christ was sent. As He was sent to show the Father’s love to the world, we are sent to make Christ visible by our very being, by sharing our love, faith, and hope.
