About us

Arme Schulschwestern – School Sisters of Notre Dame

We, the School Sisters of Notre Dame, are a spiritual community, founded in the 19th century by Maria Theresia  of Jesus Gerhardinger. Our constitution “You Are Sent” holds our way of life and our common vision for about 2.900 sisters in 32 countries.

Our Vision

As religious women with a worldwide perspective we are attentive especially to the needs of women, children and to those deprived and disadvantaged by society. We strive to form a global community, in which human dignity is being respected, justice is being practiced, spirituality is being cultivated and the Creation is being protected.
