A New Way to Make a Difference!

"Very courageous souls are needed for the service of the good God." - St. Julie Billiart

The Sisters of Notre Dame are pleased to announce a new way for you to experience the Notre Dame mission in action. Live the Good (LTG) provides opportunities for men, women, and families to join the Sisters in making God's goodness known through mission-based service.

Live the Good is more than service. It's a growing community of volunteers who put their faith in action - together. Each Live the Good is unique and includes prayerful reflection before and after service. A Live the Good experience might be a couple of hours, a day, or even a weekend. It might be held in Greater Cincinnati or in one of four cities across the country - Phoenix, Chicago, Baltimore, or Kermit, West Virginia. Events will change month to month but the foundation never changes. Everything stands on the mission.

Live the Good volunteers have a wonderful time participating in these events. Here's what they like best:

Being with people who share my faith and just want to do good.

Making new friends I would have never met otherwise.

It makes my heart happy.

The beautiful prayer service and working together.

Anticipating the surprise and joy of teachers and students when they return to school (where we volunteered) and see what we've done.
