From the Editor: Good Works
The 2014 Chapter Calls of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur challenge our Congregation to consider specific actions for protecting the environment. This call involves a new venture for the publication, Good Works. Our goal is to use a different medium for telling our stories to our wide audience while responding to the demands of our time and new technology, as encouraged by Pope Francis in his Encyclical, Laudato Si’. In these past months, we have been proactive in planning a transition from a published magazine to an online magazine, downloadable and printable for home/work/school.
Our Website manager, Sr. Angele Lewis, SNDdeN and I have been experimenting with various vehicles for an online magazine. At the request of educators for a user-friendly communication in an “online/wireless” environment, we have already been publishing stories in a Good Works Blog on WordPress.
This March 2016 Good Works is the last printed edition. Our plan is to introduce an online Good Works magazine in mid-June 2016. Over the next few months, we will redirect our Good Works Blog to our two Websites (www.sndden.org and www.notredameonline.org). From these portals, you will be able to subscribe by clicking on the feature on the top right hand side of the blog that says “Follow this Blog via Email.” We intend to post a .pdf at the end of each story, for ease of online reading and printing. You will find a preview of our new online publication, now in process, at our growing site for Good Works Blog: (https://snddengw.wordpress.com).
Communicating our stories to those who support our Mission on five continents is a priority. We will continue to share the Joy of the Gospel in stories about ministries of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur internationally. We thank you for your ongoing support.
United in proclaiming God’s goodness,
Sr. Anne Stevenson, SNDdeN
