Foundation Day celebrations

On October 24, the School Sisters of Notre Dame (SSND) will celebrate 188 years since their foundation. In celebration of this incredible anniversary, you can enjoy past celebration stories, reflections and videos.

Save the date for October 24 to view this year’s celebration video featuring quotes from Mother Caroline Friess, who led the growth and expansion of SSND in North America, in combination with current photos of SSND in the three collaborative provinces: Atlantic-Midwest Province, Central Pacific Province and Province of Africa.

The video and imagery reflect Mother Caroline’s spirit of hope and possibilities that still exists today. Having accompanied Blessed Theresa to New York in 1847, Mother Caroline was instrumental to the growth and expansion of SSND throughout North America and in turn, SSND missions reach as far as Asia, Africa and Latin America. Like Blessed Theresa, Mother Caroline wrote many letters to her sisters, filled with affection and down-to-earth advice, revealing the heart of a compassionate servant leader.

 

The celebration video will appear below on October 24, 2021.
