SISTERS OF NOTRE DAME DE NAMUR
making known God’s goodness… educating for life.
Sisters of Notre Dame,
women with hearts as wide as the world,
make known God’s goodness and love
with and among people living in poverty,
through a Gospel way of life, community and prayer.
Continuing a strong educational tradition,
we take our stand with poor people,
especially women and children,
in the most abandoned places.
Each of us commits her one and only life
to work with others to create justice and peace for all.
