What We Do

Social Services

"Preach the Gospel and use words if you must." ~Attributed to St. Francis

As Sisters of Notre Dame we are compelled by a passion for Christ and compassion for humanity to engage in social ministries that contribute to the transformation of the world. Through social service ministry, we are sensitive to the dignity of every human person and strive to recognize the face of Jesus in those we serve.

The Sisters of Notre Dame sponsor specific institutional areas of social ministry, such as education and healthcare services. However, we often become aware of human need and situations beyond these formal structures that we desire to address in order to serve Jesus' mission.

Serving Others, Serving Jesus' Mission

In addition to daily ministries, many active and retired Sisters of Notre Dame share their time and passion at local and national social service agencies. Their service extends, but is not limited to:

  • Homeless outreach agencies
  • Food pantries
  • Healthcare facilities
  • Learning centers
  • Prison ministry
