Sister Irene Brookman Arthur

I joined the School Sisters of Notre Dame because of my desire to devote my entire life to the service of God and all of Creation in every respect. I have received so much love and care that moves me to share my gifts through education in its broader sense and to strive for unity wherever I find myself.  Do you hear the tiny whisper of the Spirit in your heart calling you to dedicate your life for God's creation?  Then SSND is the place for you to unwrap your gifts and pursue God's cause! I live in Ghana, West Africa.

Sister Ruth Mori

Discerning the sign of the time communally, One heart and one soul, internationality, and the innovative way to follow Jesus attracts me, because this is the SSND community.  Since 2010 I have been serving as the vocation director of Japan region.  I live in Kyoto, Japan.
