 The Sisters of Notre Dame in India belong to the International religious congregation of the Sisters of Notre Dame which was founded in Coesfeld, Germany in 1850.   Since then, the Congregation has spread to eighteen countries of the five continents,  The first foundation in India was at Jamalpur, Bihar, in the year 1949.

Patna Notre Dame Sisters' Society was registered on April 29th, 1949 under the Societies Registration Act of 1860 (No. 5, R.O.S, Patna). The Provincial House and Central Office of the Society is Notre Dame Convent, Pataliputra, Patna, Bihar.

Notre Dame mission in India, under the title of "the Province of Our Lady of the Assumption" grew rapidly with more Sisters from the United States and many young women from various parts of India joining the Congregation. The apostolic works of the Sisters spread in the States of Bihar, West-Bengal, Delhi, U.P. Karnataka, Tamilnadu, Kerala, Chattisgarh, Jharkhand, Jammu Kashmir, Maharashtra, Orissa, Andhra and Assam. In 1992, the province sent Sisters as missionaries to Tanzania in East Africa.  In 2004, the affiliations in the South of India were constituted as the new Province of Our Lady of the Visitation. 

As Sisters of Notre Dame, we are engaged in a variety of apostolic services in the cities, towns, and villages. We serve all people through education, Healthcare, Social Action, and Pastoral Care and show special care and concern for those who experience poverty in its various forms.
