The North American Vocation Team (NAVT) of the School Sisters of Notre Dame (SSND) invite young adults ages 18 and older to online evening prayer on the fourth Tuesday of each month at 8 p.m. EST (7 p.m. CST). The dates for evening prayer during the first half of 2022 will be January 25, February 22, March 22, April 26, May 24 and June 28. More information and registration for the Zoom links is available at ssnd.org/events.
The monthly online evening prayer was started in 2020 in response to the need to adapt outreach efforts due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Based on the Liturgy of the Hours, the online evening prayer typically lasts about an hour and includes scripture, psalm responses, the Magnificat, personal and communal intercessory prayers as well as time for small-group community building.
“Our online evening prayer has allowed us to connect regularly with sisters and young adults all across the U.S. and Canada,” said Sister Bridget Waldorf of the NAVT. “It has been an amazing opportunity to share our daily prayer and community time with those who are seeking to better recognize and understand God’s presence in their lives.”
The NAVT accompanies young adults as they discern God’s call while informing them about the mission and charism of SSND, an international community of almost 2,100 women religious founded in Bavaria in 1833. The SSND mission is to proclaim the Good News, directing their entire lives toward that oneness for which Jesus Christ was sent. Continuing the sacred work of their foundress, Blessed Theresa of Jesus Gerhardinger, School Sisters of Notre Dame transform the world through education, giving special emphasis to women, young people and those who are poor.
