We are happy to share the discovery of a new species of a screech owl in the Amazon rainforest named after our martyred Sister of Notre Dame de Namur Dorothy Stang. A native of Dayton, OH, and a graduate of Julienne High School, Sister Dorothy taught in Illinois and Arizona before beginning her life’s work in the Brazilian Amazon fighting for the rights of people in poverty.

The Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur ask for prayers for the repose of the soul of Sister Rita Buddeke, SNDdeN who passed away on March 25, 2021

Sister Joan Burke, SNDdeN served as the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur representative to the United Nations from 2002 through 2010. She lived the better part of 50 years among people who are poor in three different countries of Africa and recently was also a professor in an adult education program at Tangaza University College in Nairobi. She has served as a member of both the Nigeria and the Kenya Provincial Leadership Teams. Below is an article written for the SND at the UN, in which Sister Joan reflects upon the UN’s recent 10-day meeting focusing on digital technologies as they relate to human wellbeing in across the globe.
