Multi-Day Event


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.

We Sisters, Associates, Mission Volunteers, Staff, and Friends, of Notre Dame de Namur are committed to “demonstrate reverence for personality”, and nurture of each person’s God-given gift of humanity. With this determination and vision, we strive to collaborate with those among whom we live, serve, and/or minister.

A year after the martyrdom of Sister Dorothy Stang in 2005 in Boa Esperança, Pará, Brazil, the Stang family, during their customary family reunion, dedicated a large stone with a bronze plaque in Dorothy’s memory at Calvary Cemetery in Dayton, Ohio. On this 2021 Earth Day the stone and plaque were relocated to the newly named Sister Dorothy Stang Way. Sister Judi Clemens joined Dot’s sister, Barbara Richardson, and an intergenerational gathering of Stang family members for the dedication.
