Getting to Know You

As religious habits were modified or changed after Vatican II, it was not easy to identify specific religious communities. In the General Chapter of 1972, a symbol was suggested for the School Sisters of Notre Dame as a means of identification. This symbol is on the home page of Sturdy Roots. With a slight modification the same design is available to SSND Associates.

While participating in the 22nd General Chapter held in Sao Leopoldo, Brazil, S. Justine Nutz, SSND, reflected on the meaning of the SSND symbol.
