Service providers for victims of human trafficking gathered in Boston in September to express their gratitude and appreciation to the sisters who served on the staff at Bakhita House. The group included members of the FBI, Homeland Security-Trafficking Division, the Massachusetts Attorney General’s office as well as service providers from other programs and agencies.
An Exciting Start
Last month, twenty-nine new teams of Notre Dame Mission Volunteers (NDMV) embarked on the exciting journey of service! They spent time learning the history of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur and the NDMV/A program, were oriented to their new locales, and were provided resources to help them navigate their service.
Our Common Home
Our common home and integral ecology are two key phrases from Pope Francis’ Encyclical “Laudato Si”. If we truly believe that caring for our common home is our call, integral ecology speaks volumes to us who are growing in awareness of the interconnectedness of all creation.
