Water for Life

Prior to the unification of the Sisters of Notre Dame of the United States, this corporate stance was originally approved by the Chardon Province in September 2005, responding to protecting all natural water supplies entrusted to us.

Water is a basic right for life as well as a social and cultural good.

As Sisters of Notre Dame, we revere water as a sacred gift.   We work to protect the waters entrusted to us and we act to ensure this right for all, especially the poor in areas where our Sisters serve.   To attain this goal, we employ and teach principles of sustainability at every level  of water use.
