Mission Work

The focus of the Notre Dame mission has always been education. In fidelity to St. Julie Billiart’s vision, Sisters give particular attention to the needs of those living in poverty throughout the world, serving and educating on their behalf.


Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur work in a variety of capacities and settings, always with the goal of making known God’s goodness. You’ll find them ministering in schools, in churches, in jails, in hospitals and soup kitchens. You find them teaching children, helping adults learn English, leading liturgies and praying.
