Each year we gather the employees of our Sisters of Notre Dame Sponsored Ministries and honor those employees who are marking an anniversary year of employment with us, and each year I find myself a bit overwhelmed. These are individuals who have committed to more than a job; they make a statement by their day-to-day efforts that this is about ministry – the ministry of introducing Jesus Christ to all those they meet.
Whether they serve at Maria Early Learning Center, Notre Dame Academy, Lial Catholic School or Double ARC, our collaborators in ministry are living proof of the impact of our fourth guiding principle: an integrated education for transformation. In big ways and small ways, their presence and service makes a great difference and helps to change our world – for the better!
I am truly grateful for the blessing of each of our employees! Is there a particular employee in one of our sponsored ministries who has touched your life and helped to transform your world?
