Good Works (October 2023)

The season of fall or autumn in the Northern Hemisphere marks the transition from summer to winter. Leaves change color, eventually drop from the branches, as trees let go of them to weather the wet, cold winter. Some seeds fall and fallow in the earth until new life bursts forth in spring! Nature’s regenerating life reminds us of Jesus’ saying, “Unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single grain.”

We Work to Enable People Living in Poverty

Each of Us Commits Her One and Only Life to Work with Others to Create Justice and Peace for All.

St. Julie Billiart founded the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur to make known God’s goodness, especially among the most impoverished and abandoned people in the world. Today, Sisters of Notre Dame work with refugees in London, street children in Nairobi, immigrant farm workers in Florida, AIDS orphans in Zimbabwe, the homeless in Haiti… and always, with women and children, who are among the most vulnerable.
