Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur are an international religious Congregation of women, founded by St. Julie Billiart (1751-1816) in Amiens, France in 1804.  The Sisters are committed to make known God’s goodness through education in a variety of ministries on five continents: Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America and North America. The Sisters work to change lives by “a fundamental commitment to stand with their sisters and brothers who live in poverty and accompany them in their struggle.” The Congregation staffs offices/centers in Rome, Italy, Namur, Belgium and Ipswich, Mass., USA.
