Congrégation de Notre-Dame

Rooted in Jesus Christ, in love and compassion and in contemplative dialogue, we, CND sisters and associates, dare to go further to humanize our relationships and to allow ourselves to be transformed.

We commit to:

·      Intentionally live and deepen interculturality and intergenerationality.

·      Honour, respect and protect our common home, committing ourselves to concrete actions motivated by an integral ecological conscience.

·      Intensify our prophetic presence to the peripheries, especially with those who are impacted by the systems that engender exclusion and marginalization.

God calls us to hear the cries of our wounded world.  In the spirit of St. Marguerite Bourgeoys, we respond with fierce hope, with prophetic action, in mutuality and collaboration, together for the life of the world.

Actions that inspire personal and communal transformation:

  • Simplify our structures, at all levels, for the sake of mission.
  • Develop the processes and practices of partnership, collaboration and synodality for mission.
  • Educate ourselves on interculturality and all that it calls us to, on a personal, community, and Congregation level.
  • Face our fears and vulnerabilities and confront our internal racism.
  • Raise awareness and take a stance in the face of inequities and social issues especially systemic racism, discrimination and the impact of colonialism.
