Moorpark residents Richard and Anne Interrante decided to embark on their Associate formation journey with the Sisters of Notre Dame together as husband and wife. The process of becoming Associates has brought them closer to God and strengthened their faith, commitment to service and prayer life.



“The Associate program has allowed me to find out about the sisters’ mission on a more personal level,” said Anne, “I witnessed how their compassion for others, dedication to service and openness to God’s call has made a direct impact on many people. Through this process I came to realize that I have a very important role in answering that call myself by using my God-given gifts to strive to create positive changes in the world around me.”

Richard reflected on how the experience has influenced his family life.

“This program inspired a desire in me to become a better spiritual role model for my family, maintain the ideals of my faith in all aspects of my life and find new ways to use my talents to help those in need,” he said. “I value the opportunity I’ve had over these past months to participate in this program with my wife, knowing that we can work together and challenge each other to make what we have learned a more active part of our daily lives.”

Richard, Anne and other Associates candidates will make their covenant during a ceremony on Saturday, June 7th. We congratulate them and welcome them to the Notre Dame family.
