Blessed Theresa Feast Day 2024

Each year on May 9, School Sisters of Notre Dame celebrate the feast day of our foundress, Blessed Theresa of Jesus Gerhardinger, who died on this day in 1879. A woman of faith, longing for the oneness for which Jesus Christ was sent and ever seeking God’s will, Blessed Theresa founded the School Sisters of Notre Dame in Bavaria in 1833 in response to the urgent needs of her day. Her spirit and vision continue to guide and inspire all who join SSND in mission.

As we commemorate her feast day, please enjoy this remembrance of her life and words. Happy Feast Day!
