           " 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 individuals

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—

across nations and cultures–to Christ, to one another and to the people to whom we are sent.
