2018 in Review

Associates logoSchool Sisters of Notre Dame Associates

We close this year celebrating the many blessings of 2018. We were blessed with many gatherings scattered throughout the province. Our most popular topics during 2018 included human trafficking, Laudato Si and Loves Gives Everything. Associates have been involved with visiting retired sisters and associates, gathering and distributing items for people in need, helping children with few resources and praying for the urgent needs of our world. The heritage pilgrimage to Germany was a highlight, allowing 14 associates to connect with German sisters, associates and renewing their covenant at Mother Theresa’s grave in Munich.

Two SSND associates who gathered in 2018. Here are a few facts from the year:

  • 313 associates
  • 22 new associates
  • 5 deaths
  • 20+ pre-associates
  • Reside in 20 states, Guam and Japan
  • 100s of gatherings in a variety of settings throughout the province
  • Articles in Connections, NewsLink, Central Pacific Facebook page

We are grateful for the support of the sisters and staff throughout 2018!
