Mission Statement

God summons Associates of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur to spread everywhere the Gospel message as expressed by St. Julie Billiart, "How good is the good God."

Associates choose to work together with the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur in living the Gospel in the spirit of St. Julie. Associates integrate St. Julie's spirit into their own unique ways of life.

The spirit of St. Julie is one of simplicity, obedience and charity. Associates respond to God's will with a special concern for "the poor in the most abandoned places" in their struggle to sustain human life and dignity.

Associates respond to God's call to holiness and wholeness by openness to the good God. Associates deepen their spiritual growth and share in the works of God's people.

Associates and Sisters support, affirm and pray for one another. Associates communicate with each other personally and as a community.
