January 19, 2020: 2018-2019 Annual Report
This past year has seen big changes and exciting developments for the Notre Dame Sisters and the communities we serve, contributing to an air of momentum.
We welcomed Sandra Koch as our new Vice President of Advancement. Sandra will build upon the momentum we’ve created over the years. We look forward to Sandra’s building on the momentum of our advancement efforts and anxiously await the blessings that will pour forth.
Additionally, we Sisters were invited to participate in a program to build our capacity to attract needed resources to sustain our missions for decades. We continue to support our missions – Notre Dame Housing, Safe Homes, Coalition on Human Trafficking, and individual missions we hold close to our hearts – immigration, education, and advocacy.
The Coalition on Human Trafficking is gaining momentum and is now its own nonprofit organization with several Sisters still actively working with the Coalition. I
n March, we celebrated the Spirit that infuses the Notre Dame Sisters and staff at our annual dinner. Julie Kaminski, CFO of Immanuel was honored for her advocacy of the elderly.
The Spirit we celebrate is one of giving and love that flows from the many donors and volunteers who are faithful to us year after year. Our work would not be possible without you, and we celebrate you. May the Lord continue to bless us all as we move forward in love and faith to make a difference.
SR. MARGARET HICKEY,
ND Provincial President
