Our Spirituality  

Our spirituality is apostolic in the tradition of St Julie Billiart whose unique experience of prayer and action enabled her to find God’s presence everywhere, and in a special way among the poor. 
 
We too strive to be women of prayer, who seek in every aspect of our lives to be united with God and to be responsive to the Spirit of Jesus, the Spirit of love. 
 
We proclaim with our foundress, St Julie Billiart, “How good is the Good God!” The cross we wear summarises this spirituality of confidence in God’s goodness during joyful times as well as difficult ones. 
One side reads, “Ah, qu’il est bon, le Bon Dieu!” (“How good is the Good God!”). On the other side are the letters “ND” (“Notre Dame” — “Our Lady”), reminding us of the role Mary, mother of Jesus, has in our lives. 
 
“Like Mary whose name we bear, we are called to hear the word of God and keep it. Our attentive listening shapes in us a contemplative and prophetic attitude toward the whole of life and enables us to act in ways which witness to God’s love and justice.”

Something appeared to them 
like tongues of fire 
which came to rest  
on the head of each of them 
 
They were all filled  
with the Holy Spirit 
 
The love of God 
has been poured into our hearts 
through the Spirit of God 
dwelling within us 
Alleluia
