Blessed Theresa Gerhardinger
" Transforming the
World Through Education"
Our mission is to proclaim the good news as School Sisters of
Notre Dame (SSND), directing our entire lives toward that
oneness for which Jesus Christ was sent.
Our ministry is directed toward education. For us that means
enabling persons to reach the fullness of their potential as
created in God's image and assisting them to direct
their gifts toward building the earth.
Committed to this goal, we respond to varying needs of church
and world through a diversity of ministries. We strive to live
and work in ways that reflect and promote the values Christ
lived and taught.
Our common heritage and charism, our community life and mission
promote and strengthen the unity which binds our Sisters—
nations and cultures–to Christ, to one another and to the people to whom we are sent.
