Catholic Schools Week 2015

Posted on: January 5, 2015 12:00 pm

One component of the mission of the Sisters of Notre Dame is to promote Catholic education, especially for women and children in urban and mission schools. Since the late 1800s, the Covington Sisters of Notre Dame have done just that for students in Kentucky, Ohio, and now Uganda.

On January 25-31, 2015, we will celebrate our history and our future in Catholic education as part of National Catholic Schools Week, but we do not want to celebrate alone.

As National Catholic Schools Week approaches, we hope to hear from past and current students (and classmates!) of the Sisters of Notre Dame.

If you have a story that celebrates your Catholic education with the Sisters of Notre Dame, please share it below in the comments section.

My best friend, Phyliss Dressman and I used to clean vigil lights after school at St. Augustine, Cov. The sisters would give us some Hershey bars they didn't sell once in a while. We were walking home up Howell St. in the rain. We both had umbrellas and we both spotted this $5.00 bill on the sidewalk and we both dashed to get it. Well I got it. I took it home to my Mother, who was hanging up wash in the attic. She cried when I gave it to her. I guess she could really use it.
