Rooted in the mission of Jesus, the SND National Education Office provides direction and support to sponsored and affiliated ministries in advancing the Educational Vision & Principles of the Sisters of Notre Dame.

SND Charism

The Charism of the Sisters of Notre Dame is a deep experience of God's goodness and provident care. In religious congregations, this is the distinct spirit that directs and guides all members. In essence, it is a gift of the Holy Spirit for the sake of the Church and part of the living legacy passed down from the foundress to each sister. The SND Charism is a gift given to all who are a part of our educational ministries.

"Centered in Jesus Christ,
united as a community in his love and in the spirit of Mary,
we share a life of faith and joyful simplicity,
ready to take up our cross daily in love.
We are consecrated for mission in the Church."
