For Sister Lucy Clement Etim, being a School Sister of

Notre Dame has blessed her with the richness of diversity,

broadened her world vision and shaped her perspective.

Sister Lucy, who is from Nigeria, made her first profession in

Ghana and currently lives in Kenya. Her first call to religious

life came during her first Holy communion in primary school.

“I felt a special call to dedicate my whole life to Christ

with an undivided heart and mind in service and deep

relationship,” Sister Lucy said.

“What drew me to SSND was the simplicity of the sisters

when I first met them; the way they interacted with us

touched me; the hospitality and the kind of education that

they gave to us helped bring out the potential in each one.

I was helped to gain a lot of self-confidence and share my

talents with others and not feel shy. That was a significant

moment in my life and I was touched and wanted to be like

them to help others, serving God in that way as an educator.

“Today, I feel glad to be a School Sister of Notre Dame

and minister with a world vision that the world can be

transformed through education. The challenge of living

religious life for me is to what extent I should be involved

in the world to serve and witness against the diseases of

secularization, consumerism and divisions.”
