April 2019 Reflection

April 1, 2019

Perhaps one of the reasons Lent is so good for us is that we get in touch with the rhythm of our relationship with the Lord. We get in touch with the dying and rising within our own hearts.

Recently, the struggle for clean water has improved in rural Nigerian villages, but having enough water continues to be a frustration and concern for the Sisters, schools, medical facilities and local communities.

World Water Day

March 19, 2019

March 22 is World Water Day. Learn more about the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur’s Clean Water for Life Program and how it provides clean, safe water to vulnerable people throughout the world.

It has been brought to our attention that a scam artist is sending emails to an unknown amount of people requesting funds in Sister Dorothy Stang’s name.

In this time of Lent, please support us as we make manifest the miracle of God’s love and compassion in the world.

In the African countries where our Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur live and work, clean water is an ongoing challenge. Sister Henriette lives and works in Lemfu and Sister Patience is based in Kinsaku.

During the 2019 Lenten season, we’ll share the work of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur from around the world.

This Lenten season is a time to get to know God better, to know how he thinks and how he acts. As we walk with Him these 40 days, may we grow to love Him more each day.

Special thanks to the Cincinnati Enquirer for recognizing our Sister Rose Ann Fleming!
