The School Sisters of Notre Dame (SSND) is an international congregation of nearly 2,000 women religious. We work to transform the world through education with the belief that education extends beyond the classroom. We serve in a variety of ministries, helping individuals and communities in need. Social justice and advocacy issues are central to SSND values. Although SSND started as teachers, our roles today include administrators, librarians, lawyers and accountants. We are also nurses, facilitators and therapists, pastoral and parish ministers, volunteers and women of prayer. Regardless of where we come from or how we serve, we are all proud members of the School Sisters of Notre Dame.
We invite you to meet our sisters. A new sister will be added each month. (Click on the images to read more.)
