COVID-19 Donation Drop-Offs

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we are limiting accepted items and drop-off times.

Please call 859-291-2040 or email info@sndky.org to determine if we can arrange a drop-off time. Thank you for your understanding. 


Current Needs

• Support of SND USA mission priorities

Contributing to the greatest needs of the Sisters of Notre Dame supports our outreach in the areas of Justice, Peace, and Integrity of Creation, vocation and young adult ministry, education, and healthcare.

• Lift chairs for sisters with mobility issues

New chairs average $1,000 each. We learned that Medicare will not cover these. If you have a lift chair in good condition or would like to donate toward the purchase of a chair, please let us know at info@sndky.org.

Thank you to everyone who has donated a chair (we have received four chairs so far!) or money toward the purchase of a chair. Our initial goal in fall 2019 was to replace five dilapidated chairs; we hope to continue to replace chairs currently in use and to provide for sisters who will be getting her first lift chair.

Partners in Mission

As Sisters of Notre Dame, we are missioned to incarnate the love of our good and provident God. We do not do this alone. Many kind partners help us turn mission into ministry through their prayers, their engagement, and their financial contributions.

Here are some of the SND ministries and outreach our partners have made possible:

  • Serving as religious educators and prayer resources at parishes, including St. Agnes Church and Good Shepherd Community.
  • Providing senior services and pastoral care at places such as St. Charles Community, Carmel Manor, and St. Elizabeth Medical Center.
  • Connecting the community through Pilgrimage Walks, the Ash Wednesday Day of Recollection, Women's Weekend Retreats, and young adult Charis Retreats.
  • Tutoring and empowering children and families in Northern Kentucky through the Notre Dame Urban Education Center. Many sisters who are retired volunteer at NDUEC several times a week.
  • Making a Catholic education possible for 600 children in rural Uganda.
  • Connecting with patients at St. Claire HealthCare and ensuring quality care in rural Kentucky counties, some of which are the poorest in the nation.
  • Providing emergency tuition funds to the schools served by the Sisters of Notre Dame. This is immediate relief to families we serve and students we educate.
  • Teaching at local schools, including Covington Latin and Notre Dame Academy.
