Join the Blessed Theresa Society

Blessed Theresa Gerhardinger with studentsThe Blessed Theresa Society, named after the School Sisters of Notre Dame’s foundress, recognizes individuals and families who have made a long-term commitment to us through planned giving. Become a member today!

This legacy society provides a way for sisters to recognize and thank donors who have named SSND in their estate planning. As a member, you will receive a certificate, be recognized at our Mass of Appreciation (if desired) and remembered in special prayers throughout the year. Most important, you will ensure that our mission and ministries will continue for generations to come and our retired sisters will receive quality care.
