. . . And She Said, “Yes!”

“I don’t ever want a student to feel she or he is a failure. Ever!”

It could have been said by any Sister of Notre Dame de Namur.

In almost any decade since 1804.

In almost any town where the Sisters have taught, across continents.

Now, it’s said by 34-year-old Sister Sarah Cieplinski.

Sister Sarah will make final vows in December at Mount Notre Dame in Cincinnati. She’s been on the journey since her junior year in high school.

“The idea came to me that God might be calling me to religious life,” she says, “and I began even then exploring the options, checking them out.”
