Dear Friends,

February 22, 2023, Ash Wednesday, we begin a new journey. The journey through Lent. Forty days of remembrance, praying, fasting and almsgiving. Over the years of following the Church’s encouragement, praying, fasting and almsgiving, this year we look to widening our tents to include so much more than a simple definition of praying, fasting and almsgiving to include “Care of our Common Home”: Tending to the needs of our earth and environment.

Pope Francis invites us ALL to share in the Care of Our Home by praying, yes; fasting – use what we need and commit to renewing the face of our earth.

Please click on and view THE INVITATION. This is a letter from Pope Francis extending an invitation to us – all of us – from youth to adults to look at our World and respond to the NEED of others. Really, all of us need to care for this Earth of ours and become aware of Earth’s need for life – really our life and God’s legacy.

Take this first week of Lent to ponder. Awakening yourself the need of the Earth for care. It is up to us to respond.

Our Sisters across five continents address issues related to water needs, land conservation and energy use to further our mission of making known God’s goodness. Being mindful of the resourses and gifts of God’s creation.

We are grateful for your presence and support in this great mission.

Sr. Leonore Coan, SNDdeN



Water Changes Everything

Life with or without water changes everything. During these past 20 years, the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur have dreamed, planned, talked about and imagined, envisioned, encouraged and sacrificed to produce a project that would and does change everything.
