The Sisters of Notre Dame are an international congregation. It is expected that our Associates are well formed in our charism and spirituality. The formation program is a year-long series of classes with candidates and their sponsors. In the 2018-2019 group there are 12 men and women who began their formation sessions in September, 2018. Topics to be covered are:
September: Lay spirituality / universal call to holiness
February: History & charism of SND
March: Mission of SND
April: Hope-filled presence & the Kingdom of God
In August there is a day-long retreat for candidates and sponsors.
In September we celebrate the Associate Covenant with the Sisters and Associates’ families.
Since we have been accepting candidates only every other year, our next group will begin in September, 2020.
