Join the School Sisters of Notre Dame (SSND) celebrating sisters during the month of March in conjunction with National Catholic Sisters Week (March 8-14). SSND will be sharing stories from sisters, associates and lay people, who actively fight injustice in the St. Louis community, on social media and with a billboard campaign in collaboration with the Communicators of St. Louis Sisters (CSLS).

If you have worked with, or been impacted by SSNDs, you are invited to join the conversation and share your stories by using the hashtag #StandWithSisters on Facebook and Twitter throughout the month of March. You can find and share important messages from St. Louis sister congregations on our Facebook page. You can also use the Facebook profile photo frame that says #StandWithSisters (instructions on how to do this below) to show your support. The full campaign and more details can be found on the CSLS website.

Billboard campaign

If you are in the St. Louis metro area, you will see five billboards posted throughout the month of March celebrating sisters and their work. These billboards will carry a variety of messages including:

“We stand with IMMIGRANTS.”
“We stand for THE EARTH.”
“We stand against RACISM.”
“We stand against OPPRESSION.”

The billboard messages will encourage you to check out the hashtag #StandWithSisters and engage with us on social media.
