For more than 135 years, the Sisters of Notre Dame have been an integral part of the fabric of life in Northern Kentucky and the Greater Cincinnati region. Best known for their dedicated service as Catholic school teachers and administrators, the Sisters of Notre Dame have embraced numerous opportunities to minister to the people of the region and beyond. From operating orphanages, senior care centers, and hospitals to medical research, foreign missions in Uganda, and urban education centers in the inner city, the Sisters of Notre Dame have touched the lives of tens of thousands of people by their example of self-sacrifice and dedication to helping others. Their highly recognizable convent of St. Joseph Heights on the Dixie Highway stands as a visible reminder of the religious heritage offered to all by the Sisters of Notre Dame of the Covington Province.
