Since their arrival in Cleveland in 1874 to serve German Catholic immigrants, the Sisters of Notre Dame (SND) have given their time, skills, and compassion to the people of Northern Ohio and beyond. Beginning as teachers in classrooms from preschool through university, they have brought God’s goodness and care to people in parishes and hospitals, prisons, and the streets as they walk with people who are in need. Members of an international congregation, the sisters responded to the missionary call to serve in California, Virginia, North Carolina, and Florida and in India, Uganda, Nicaragua, and the Philippines. As the Cleveland Notre Dame community prepares to reunite in 2020 with Notre Dame in Toledo, Covington, and Southern California, they look back in gratitude and forward in hope.
