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.





(Matthew 12)

The disciples were hungry and they began to pick some grain to eat. It was the Sabbath. The Pharisees complained.

How sterile the letter of the law can become and how self-righteous those who keep it can become.

Lord God, you often reminded your disciples that you desired mercy rather than sacrifice. “It is one with the heart that we see rightly.”
