As a Sister

Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, women with hearts as wide as the world, make known God's goodness and love of the poor 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.
