Sister Debra Sciano, provincial leader, shared, “We are so thankful to everyone who worked to secure vaccines for the School Sisters of Notre Dame. At the same time, we recognize that this is the first step in a long process to achieve immunity for our sisters. In the interim, sisters will continue to vigorously practice the CDC guidelines of wearing masks, social distancing and frequent handwashing. The School Sisters of Notre Dame continue to pray that all may have access to the vaccine very soon.”
