A 50th Anniversary Party!

Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, SNDdeN Associates, and friends and supporters of the Sisters gathered on June 22, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the day that Julie Billiart, the foundress of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, was declared a saint by the Church at St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome. A mass was followed by a reception at the Province Center that featured photos, film and artifacts of the canonization ceremony.

  1. What a wonderful event. I am sorry I will not be able to attend due to a family reunion. I have so many happy memories of the sisters I lived and worked with. The spirit and joy of St. Julie has spread far and wide to so many through her sisters. Gerrie (Geralyn) Patterson Hennessy

    1. We’ll be sorry to miss you, Gerrie! Thank you for your kind words – we’ll be sure to share them with the Sisters.
