In his work Laudato Si', Pope Francis reminds us that all of us can cooperate as instruments of God for the care of creation. SSND has committed to live more simply, more responsibly and more sustainably with all of creation.
The School Sisters of Notre Dame has a long history of working for the care of creation and protecting the poor and marginalized. In May 2021, we made the following commitment to Laudato Si’:
The Triune God impels us into the heart of the world to be women of peace, hope, and love. As a Laudato Si’ congregation, we embark on a seven-year journey towards an integral ecology.
In fidelity to our charism and the mission to bring all to oneness, we commit to live more simply, responsibly, and sustainably and to educate, advocate and act in collaboration with others for the dignity of life and the care of all creation.
