Throughout Africa, there is a critical lack of clean water for drinking and sanitation…almost one billion people do not have access to safe water. With the support of generous friends, our Sisters provide life-changing electricity and clean water to the people they serve.

There's only one thing more heartbreaking than the face of child who can't go to school.  It's the face of her parents.


Join Sister Mary Ann Barnhorn as she shares the gift of Notre Dame Spirituality in her monthly message.





Jesus (Matthew 7)

Jesus said, “How narrow the gate that leads to life. And those who find it are few.”

While Jesus was speaking, perhaps he had in mind the sheep gate, with its narrow entrance, to provide safety for the shepherd’s flock.

Lord God, like sheep, we must adjust ourselves to the narrow gate if we are to be among those few who are to find “life.”
