The Academy of Notre Dame de Namur is rooted in the faith tradition of the Catholic Church, the charism of our foundress, Saint Julie Billiart, and the legacy of service of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur.
Guided by the seven Hallmarks of the Notre Dame learning community, our students and graduates proclaim the goodness of God through their lives and actions.
Prayer and Worship
“You will find in prayer the strength for your journey.” - Saint Julie
The Notre Dame community begins each day in prayer led by Campus Ministry student leaders. Each Wednesday, students and faculty gather for Community Prayer, with members of our school community offering scripture readings, prayers for intercession and reflections.
Our community gathers for Mass throughout the liturgical year, with students in all grade levels taking an active role in the liturgy as readers, cantors, gift bearers and altar servers. Sacred music, offered by the Academy’s liturgical choir and instrumentalists, deepen and support our worship. There are many opportunities for families to become engaged in the liturgical life of the school community.
“Our life will never be long enough to thank the good God.” - Saint Julie
Middle and upper school students grades 6-11 are invited to join Campus Ministry as participating members. Seniors can apply to be Student Ministers, or team leaders, who plan and facilitate activities. The goal of Campus Ministry is to provide service opportunities, faith enrichment, retreats and pastoral care to our Notre Dame community.
