Sister Maureen O’Brien

As a Sister of Notre Dame de Namur for 60 years, Sister Maureen has had the privilege of witnessing to Notre Dame’s mission in the United States, Japan, Italy, the Philippines and shorter periods in Haiti and as a member of an educational team in the Democratic Republic of Congo. And for this, she is profoundly grateful.

Her life in Notre Dame has been one of understanding the richness of what our foundress, St. Julie Billiart, meant when she wrote: “The whole earth is the Lord’s….”  Sisters of Notre Dame are sent to be at home everywhere and Sr. Maureen is no exception! Her life has been blessed by the people of so many rich and different cultures.

Sister Maureen is currently an ESOL (English-for-Speakers-of-other Languages) teacher for new immigrants, mostly Hispanic, at the Notre Dame Education Center in Lawrence, Massachusetts.
