Stories from Our Notre Dame de Namur Learning Community

Last week, we were delighted to welcome F.L.I.G.H.T. students to Mount Notre Dame. Our cherished moments included guiding them through a captivating scavenger hunt in the Heritage Hallway and Museum.

Girls Retreat

April 26, 2024

For years, Gina Helms, the Campus Minister at Badin High School, had a vision of organizing an optional overnight retreat exclusively for girls. This retreat would be a blend of inspiration, introspection, camaraderie, and fun.

Chaminade Julienne High School received NCEA Dr. Karen M. Ristau Innovation Award

Congratulations to Chaminade Julienne Catholic High School for receiving the Dr. Karen M. Ristau Innovation Award presented by the National Catholic Educational Association for their Senior Capstone!

It started with a conversation among four SNDdeN educators. There were lead-ups to that...

At the end of June, high school students from our Notre Dame Learning Communities gathered for the SNDdeN Student Leadership Conference at Emmanuel College. More than 90 leaders chosen from Notre Dame schools spent four days networking, attending talks about the environment and ecological sustainability, learning about the charism of St. Julie Billiart, and planning sustainability projects to be implemented back at their schools.

On Tuesday, December 6, 2022, faculty and staff from Chaminade Julienne HS (Dayton), Mt. Notre Dame High School (Cincinnati), Badin High School (Hamilton), and The Summit (Cincinnati), along with several Sisters gathered for a day of formation, enrichment and collaboration at the Province Center of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, Ohio.

With the hope that teachers from our Notre Dame schools would benefit from being able to meet and listen to each other, our SNDdeN Sponsorship Office began a series of Zoom Meetings in late January that gathered the campus ministries of our twelve U.S. high schools with the chaplains of our U.K. schools and the Sisters overseeing our schools in Africa. The group included ten Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur and thirteen lay teachers from seven countries speaking two languages with translation.
