About the Atlantic-Midwest Province
The Atlantic-Midwest Province is one of 10 provinces in the international congregation of the School Sisters of Notre Dame. It was formed in 2005 when the Baltimore, Wilton and Chicago provinces joined together as one province; the Canadian Province joined them in 2012. Sisters of the Atlantic-Midwest Province minister in a variety of educational settings in over 30 Dioceses across North America and in England and Rome. They recognize that education of the whole person does not stop when the person finishes formal schooling. They serve people who are poor and marginalized, helping them further their education, find employment, or provide nutritious food for themselves and their families. Responding to the needs of ever-changing dynamics in our global society, Sisters in the Atlantic-Midwest Province bring the unity of Christ’s love to our broken world, especially in areas of climate change, immigration, racism, human trafficking and Haiti and through their sponsored and co-sponsored ministries.
With the Generalate in Rome, Italy, the School Sisters of Notre Dame (SSND) is organized through 10 provinces. The website www.ssnd.org provides communications support to the collaborative ministries, initiatives and projects of three provinces: the Province of Africa, the Atlantic-Midwest Province and the Central Pacific Province. SSND is an international congregation of more than 2,000 women religious. Founded in 1833 by Blessed Theresa of Jesus Gerhardinger in Bavaria, SSND now live and minister in 30 countries spanning five continents and continue to “share in Christ’s mission to proclaim the good news of God’s reign.”
