You Are Invited!

“What matters is that you serve God not
as much as you want, but as much as is possible for you.”

Blessed Mary Theresa of Jesus Gerhardinger Foundress, School Sisters of Notre Dame

In a spirit of joy, hope and reconciliation, Sisters and Associates together make Christ visible.

We invite you to join us. As an Associate, you join with the School Sisters of Notre Dame in carrying out the mission of Jesus Christ in the spirit of Blessed Theresa of Jesus Gerhardinger, our foundress, to bring all into oneness with God and assist others to grow into the fullness of their potential.

“The sisters are lovely woman who really are passionate. My passion is education and I want to do my best to serve well,” Marge Potter said. “I always hear the SSNDs talking about service and doing things for others, and they always see outside of themselves. That’s fallen on to me because I see myself as wanting to serve too.”
