There are Sisters of Notre Dame serving in 19 countries worldwide.
Some of those Sisters are from the United States. Among them are Sisters Carolyn Buhs, Sandy Price and Phyllis Cook.

Providing support and counsel to young Sisters of Notre Dame
Sr. Phyllis Cook is based in Kenya, where she works at a local school. However, her greatest joy and most important role is to give support and counsel to Kenyan Sisters of Notre Dame. When Sr. Phyllis was contemplating returning to the U.S., the Kenyan Sisters pleaded with her to stay, because her experience as a long-time Sister of Notre Dame is an invaluable resource for them.
