Academy of Notre Dame de Namur: Inspiring Young Women Since 1956

Mind, Body, and Spirit

In January of 2019, the Alumnae Office introduced the new Mind, Body, and Spirit Initiative with the Community. The primary goal of this initiative is to be intentional about the programming offered, so that it is meaningful, brings value to Alumnae, enhances the mind, body, and spirit, and supports the Mission and Hallmarks that Notre Dame was founded upon.  

The Mind

We are delighted to offer unique and intellectually stimulating opportunities. The first program we offered last year was the Young Alumnae Museum Highlights Tour. Current faculty member and English and Arts Department Chair, Dr. Califf, led a small group tour at The Philadelphia Museum of Art. We are looking forward to building on this experience and continuing to offer similar events throughout the region.

The Body

We are excited to offer wellness opportunities for Alumnae to connect. Alumnae Executive Board Member, Kristen McNeill '11, recently taught a private class at barre3 Rittenhouse that incorporated both barre and meditation. We are looking forward to offering yoga and meditation events in the future.  

The Spirit 

We will be offering opportunities for Alumnae to connect spiritually and through meaningful service projects. At the spring 2019 Alumnae Association meeting, faculty member, Julia Tully '08, led us in the opportunity to prepare meals and donate casseroles to the local organizations, Women of Hope and The Patrician Society. We will continue to explore unique ways to serve our local communities and bring Alumnae together.
