The Research Room has just been renovated. Besides volumes describing the history of the Sister of Notre Dame, there is also a small display and exhibit on the contributions the Massachusetts Sisters of Notre Dame made to the 1893 Columbian Exposition. The display will be available for public viewing in the research room until the end of October.

  1. Dear Nancy, I am looking for information on my great aunt, Sr. Margaret Schneider (born Antoinette Gertrude Schneider 25 Dec. 1887, in Columbus,OH) She entered the novitiate of SND in Reading,(Cincinnati) OH, professed 12 Aug 1909. She died 24 Aug 1981 in Reading OH Motherhouse. I remember her as she was teaching Biology at Emmanual College in Boston MA. The sisters in Reading don’t know much about her since she was so long in MA. I would love to know more about her, where she received her education and the different roles she had in her time in SND convent in Boston. Or anything else you might have about her. Several of her sibling sisters were also SND nuns in the Ohio Province, which is why she came back to Ohio when she retired.
