Social Outreach

Our mission to educate the whole person has led School Sisters of Notre Dame out of the traditional classroom and into a world in need.

Our sisters work in many places that serve people who live poverty and on the margins of society, helping them further their education, find employment, or provide nutritious food for themselves and their families. We recognize that education of a whole person doesn’t stop when a person finishes formal schooling. Responding to the needs of ever-changing dynamics in our global society, today’s sisters in the Atlantic-Midwest Province bring the unity of Christ’s love to our broken world in a variety of ways.
