Feast Day of Blessed Theresa of Jesus Gerhardinger 2023

We celebrate the Feast Day of our foundress Blessed Theresa of Jesus Gerhardinger on May 9, the anniversary of her death. In the 144 years since she was called home to God, the spirit and vision of Blessed Theresa continues to inspire the School Sisters of Notre Dame and all who join us in mission.

May the Spirit who is our bond, continue to inspire and bind us together as we move forward courageously like Blessed Theresa, planting God's word in diverse cultures across the world and embracing new realities each day. 

Thank you for collaborating with us in Mission.

Feast Day greetings from
the Provincial Council and all the Sisters of the Province of Africa
