"Ah! How good is the good God."

St. Julie Billiart expressed frequently her special gift of trust in God: "How good is the good God." Today, Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur make known God’s goodness on five continents.

From the Desk of St. Julie Billiart

 

“Peace and union of hearts, that is the bond of all the earth.”

Julie Billiart

We Work to Enable People Living in Poverty

Each of Us Commits Her One and Only Life to Work with Others to Create Justice and Peace for All.

St. Julie Billiart founded the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur to make known God’s goodness, especially among the most impoverished and abandoned people in the world. Today, Sisters of Notre Dame work with refugees in London, street children in Nairobi, immigrant farm workers in Florida, AIDS orphans in Zimbabwe, the homeless in Haiti… and always, with women and children, who are among the most vulnerable.
