The past year has been terrific for the Notre Dame Sisters. They have significantly impacted the Midwest with their mercy, talents, and courage. The sisters help families escape domestic violence. Provide safe, affordable, self-sufficient housing for older adults. Actively partner to stop human trafficking. Most importantly, the sisters continue to teach, advocate for persons who are disadvantaged, and much more.
The 24th Annual Notre Dame Sisters’ Celebration of Spirit Dinner on Sunday, March 18, 2018 focuses on a very appropriate theme: “Celebrating a Legacy, Providing a Bright Future.” This event is our primary community outreach. Guests will enjoy a social hour, silent auction and dinner to celebrate the Sisters’ legacy and provide them with a bright future.
Each year at the Celebration of Spirit event, the Notre Dame Sisters bestow their highest award, the Mother Qualberta Service Award, on an individual or individuals who exemplify the pioneering, service-oriented and generous spirit of Mother Qualberta who founded the Omaha Province of the Notre Dame Sisters. This year’s recipient is Nancy Bohnenkamp, owner of Harold’s Koffee House.
The Notre Dame Sisters are celebrating their 101st anniversary in Omaha in 2018. Their mission is to accept from God the call to reach out to people with unmet needs, to nurture in them a conviction of God’s love that they may recognize their own gifts in and through their limitations and pain. The Sisters work to educate, inform, enlighten and advocate. They are teachers, nurses, chaplains, pastoral ministers and spiritual directors. They care for and work with the ill, infirmed, minorities, marginalized and those affected by poverty, violence and social disadvantage.
