Homecoming 2015 Notre Dame Academy, Staten Island: Saturday, October 17TH: Tea: 1-4 PM, Mass – 4 PM, Dinner: 5:30 PM. The recipient this year of the Spirit of Marguerite Bourgeoys Award is Sr. Terry Martin.

Thank You:  Many thanks to all for the many cards, gifts and good wishes as I continue to celebrate my 102nd birthday. I am especially grateful for the Masses offered for me. I feel surrounded by love and support. Sister Marie Elaine LaChance, CND

Walk To End Alzheimers: The Sisters at Andrus have decided that their service project will be a Walk to End Alzheimer’s on October 1 from 1:30 to 3:30. Congregation of Notre Dame sisters and associates are welcome to join them.

Reflection On Area Day: Associate Suzanne Fandel shared this after being at the Waterbury Area Day. “On my ride home I thought of what really struck me in my sharing time with the sisters. “If this group of women (whose future is uncertain ~ and without a doubt will be different from what they expected when they made their vows) can use prayer as their guide and move forward trusting God will provide, then following their example, I can overcome any challenges in my own life. What a relief!” It was a blessed experience for me. Thank you for inviting me.”

Save The Date for the Waterbury Congregation of Notre Dame sisters and associates day of service at Children's Community School. Hope to see many of us there on Saturday October 24 from 10:00 to 2:00.
