  Laudato Si’ weekly Lenten reflections 2024  

This Lent, Sisters Kathleen Storms, Paulette Zimmerman, Mary Lorentz and Lynne Schmidt share weekly Lenten reflections based on the principles of Laudato Si’. The SSND Laudato Si’ Action Platform works with sisters across the province to live out their seven-year commitment to be a Laudato Si’ congregation. This commitment includes participating in the healing of the Earth and living in right-relationship with all in our planet’s community of life. These Lenten reflections connect Laudato Deum quotes with readings of the Gospel, accompanied by images taken by Sister Catherine Bertrand. Follow along each week with a different reflection!

Women's Leadership Luncheon 2024, Women as Peacemakers
  Women as Peacemakers in a Fractured World of Violence  

The School Sisters of Notre Dame celebrate Women’s History Month with the Women's Leadership Luncheon. Started in the late 1990s, the events are held across the Central Pacific Province in St. Louis, Milwaukee, St. Paul, Minnesota, and Dallas. The focus of the free 2024 Women’s Leadership Luncheon is Women as Peacemakers in a Fractured World of Violence. The luncheons feature the impact women peacemakers are making in our communities, and how the work they are doing is inspiring others to do the same.
