Building Community Through Service

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


To create a community of volunteers who, through service, share in the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur values and mission spirituality.


A robust and thriving community of volunteers who work alongside the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur to proclaim by our lives more than our words that God is good. In the spirit of St. Julie Billiart and rooted in the core values of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, we honor the inherent dignity of each person and act on behalf of justice and peace in the world. Together, we build community wherever we are, and cultivate friendships centered in God and hearts as wide as the world.

Welcome to Live The Good, a path volunteers and Sisters walk side-by-side to make known God’s goodness. Together, we put our faith into action.

Live The Good provides opportunities for all people to experience the gift of service and the joy of working alongside the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur and others who share their values. Each service opportunity includes discussion and reflection on the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur mission spirituality and the gifts inherent in making God’s goodness known.

We warmly welcome you to join a Live The Good Opportunity and experience faith in action. Questions? Please reach out to Holly Schlaack, Director of Volunteer Engagement, at [email protected] or 513-761-7636 ext. 8111.

Be well. Do good.

We Go Where We're Needed

February 20, 2023

Our group of 20 Live The Good volunteers arrived at the Healing Center in Springdale on a cold and windy January morning. Affiliated with Vineyard Church, the Healing Center provides services to help people meet their practical, social, emotional, spiritual, and financial needs.

A large box from West Bengal, India was on its way to my office. It appeared days before Christmas when a winter storm kept most of us at home. Somehow, the box kept moving forward.

Wrapping Up 2022

Christmas gifts aren’t the only things being wrapped this time of year. Here at the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, we’re wrapping up another year of Live The Good, a program that continues to grow exponentially, thanks to you.

Two by Two

Two By Two

November 11, 2022

There was a reason Jesus sent the disciples out two by two. I think it was because doing anything of lasting value on our own is very hard, if not impossible.

Live The Good Volunteers Support 1N5

On a recent Saturday morning, we were thrilled to host the largest Live The Good Opportunity to date. Volunteers gathered to support the efforts of 1N5, whose mission is to prevent suicide by erasing the stigma of mental illness and to promote optimal mental wellness.
