Notre Dame Associates
The Associate Program of the Notre Dame Sisters provides an opportunity for persons who are not canonical members of the Notre Dame Order to enter into a formal relationship with the congregation.
We, the Associates of the Notre Dame Sisters, commit ourselves to reach out to others with unmet needs in simple and radical ways in joyful loving service.

How Associates interact with the Notre Dame Sisters
Associate members and the Notre Dame Sisters gather monthly to share in community, prayer, ministry, and support of one another.
Why we belong
“I became an Associate because I found a loving and peaceful community of people who are on the same journey toward a deeper relationship with God. I can share faith, spirituality and receive support from the Associates and Sisters through our life experiences.”
-Cathy, Associate 22 years
Prayer of the Associates of the Notre Dame Sisters
Loving and gracious God, we praise and thank you for our Baptismal call to be disciples of Jesus.
We thank you for calling us to be Associates of the Notre Dame Sisters, to live the mission of Jesus expressed in their charism.
Give us the vision and courage to live out this call to simple and radical ways as we reach out to people with unmet needs.
With Mary, our model of Gospel justice, may we be persons of hospitality, open and daring to share our gifts in joyful, loving service.
Trusting in the guidance of the Holy Spirit we make our prayer through Christ, you Son. Amen.
