SND Associates are lay persons who promise to live out the charism, spirituality, and mission of the Sisters of Notre Dame in their own life circumstances. They aim to daily witness God’s goodness and provident love. This is the charism of the Sisters of Notre Dame.
Associates participate in faith sharing and retreats, deepen their spiritual life through liturgical and personal prayer, and share their gifts and talents in many ways with their families, their parish, diocese and the Sisters of Notre Dame. This associate relationship is one of mutuality in which both the Associates and Sisters greatly benefit.
