More than 200 professionals engaged in the educational and healthcare ministries of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur around the globe gathered on Emmanuel College's Fenway campus from July 25-July 28 for Networking for Mission III. Attendees from 10 countries-including Belgium, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Nigeria, Peru, South Africa, DR Congo and the United Kingdom-and a dozen states across the U.S. participated in a series of vibrant discussions and interactive workshops focusing on the SNDdeN mission in the 21st century.
In May 2019, Emmanuel College was selected as one of 100 Boston-area nonprofits to receive a $100,000 grant through Cummings Foundation's "$100K for 100" program. The grant will help support service initiatives through Emmanuel's Cardinal Seán O'Malley Center for Mission & Ministry.
