We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.

 

 

You are already an important face in the congregation of the Sisters of Notre Dame, and your ongoing support and encouragement helps the sisters continue their selfless ministries throughout Southern California and around the world. We’d like to invite you to use Giving Tuesday to consider giving to the Sisters of Notre Dame.

If you’re on our email list, you’re already looking forward to our annual Advent Reflection Series, which kicks off on Sunday, November 30th, the first day of Advent. The sisters have written heartfelt reflections to share with you throughout the Advent season. To join the list, just email cvieira@sndca.org. The Sisters of Notre Dame wish you a blessed Advent season full of thanksgiving and peace!
