What We Do

Social Justice Advocacy

The promotion of justice, peace and integrity of creation is an essential part of living our SND charism today.  Rooted in the biblical tradition, we believe that matters of justice are inseparable from our Christian lives.  In understanding the biblical foundation of justice we understand our baptismal call from its deepest source and foundation and bring the vision of the reign of God to life through our prayer, witness, work, collaboration and advocacy.  (SND General Chapter 2010 Document)

Justice, Peace, and Integrity of Creation

The Sisters of Notre Dame Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation (JPIC) commission is part of a worldwide collaboration to address JPIC issues. We aim to raise awareness and increase involvement in advocacy initiatives, as well as to educate ourselves and others regarding social justice issues and Catholic Social Teaching.

We have committed ourselves to a congregation-wide focus on:

  • Women, Children and Elderly Persons
  • Immigration and Human Trafficking
  • Integrity of Creation

The Sisters of Notre Dame take corporate stances on particular issues of concern, to raise awareness within the community, and commit ourselves to action regarding the issue.
