On October 20, 2017, approximately 200 Notre Dame Sisters and Associates from all 4 U.S. provinces gathered in Chardon for the first ever, National Associate and Sister Gathering. The U.S. provinces merge into one SND-USA province in 2020, and this gathering was a wonderful opportunity where the gift of the Spirit was alive forming new relationships, strengthening our bond, and sharing in prayer.
The theme of the gathering was “Remember, Celebrate, and Believe.” Sr. Kristin Battles, SND Superior General from Rome, addressed the “Celebrate” with a presentation of our Sisters ministering worldwide. Presenting from our Toledo Province, Sr. Teresita Richards, gave a presentation highlighting the theme “Believe” by looking at how the faith of our founding Sisters has continued to influence the spirit and growth of the congregation and the wonderful Sister-Associate relationship.
