Notre Dame Associates

Associate Vision/Mission Statement:

Associates of Notre Dame de Namur are persons called to the charism of St. Julie Billiart, making known God's goodness in their everyday lives. Associates deepen their relationship with God through their life of prayer and their relationships with others who share the charism and spirituality of St. Julie. Associates collaborate with the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur in their mission to reveal the goodness of God in the world.

Why Become An Associate?

Are you seeking meaning in your life?
Associates are nourished spiritually and feed a deep inner desire to grow and live out the spirituality of St. Julie. Associates exchange ideas, prayers, hopes and dreams with others who believe in the Gospel in the spirit of St. Julie.

Would you like to grow in your adult faith?
Associates live as faith-filled, compassionate, loving and caring Christian women and men who desire to proclaim God's goodness in all aspects of their lives. Associates are enriched, challenged and inspired by living out St. Julie's spirituality individually and collaboratively with the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur.

Come share your journey of faith as an Associate with the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur.

A dedication ceremony was held on Saturday, September 16, 2023.
