Spirit of Sister Dorothy Stang Award
The Spirit of Sister Dorothy Stang Award is given to faculty members, parish ministers, parishioners active in social justice ministry and graduating seniors in the Catholic high schools and parish youth ministry programs in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. It is granted by the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur and the Archdiocese of Cincinnati Offices of Mission, Social Action, Youth and Young Adult Ministry and Evangelization and Catechesis.
"We celebrate and thank our Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur Ohio Province current and past missionaries for the gift of their lives to people in other countries and cultures around the world and for the reciprocal benefits they bring back to us on their return." As they say in Nigeria, "To God be the glory." -- Sister Carol Wetli, SNDdeN

- To keep alive the ministry and memory of Sister Dorothy Stang that included her solidarity with the poor, her care for the earth and her love for Jesus’ mission.
