Director of Campus Ministry
Sr. Ann Howard, SNDdeN, BCC
Location: Main 219
Sr. Ann Howard, a Sister of Notre Dame for over 30 years, moved to DC from Connecticut in August, 2016, to participate in a local formation community on Bryant St. NW. Sr. Ann graduated from the University of Connecticut before becoming a SND, and, after teaching elementary students, pursued an M. Div. at Boston College (Jesuits) as a means of professional development. Serving in Campus Ministry in high school and in college, and as Site Director with Notre Dame Mission Volunteers- AmeriCorps in Hartford, CT, Sr. Ann has learned to walk with others who are discerning their future directions. On serving others, Sr. Ann says, “Service to others is a way of recognizing one’s own gifts, and experiencing joy in giving to others.” When Sr. Ann felt the need to further her listening skills, she enrolled in a course in Clinical Pastoral Education through the National Association of Catholic Chaplains, in Brighton, MA. Now, a Board Certified Chaplain, Sr. Ann has served in parish and hospital ministry, accompanying families and individuals of various faith backgrounds, towards embracing life’s challenges.
Returning from a recent visit to the SND mission in Les Cayes, Haiti, Sr. Ann has confirmed her belief in education as a way to viable future options. Sr. Ann is happy to join the Student Affairs Department of Trinity Washington University to serve as Director of Campus Ministry. “As a Sister of Notre Dame, I have lived with and worked with Trinity alums who embody the characteristic Trinity leadership and competence and confidence. How happy I am to accept this new challenge: fostering Spirituality in this unique academic environment of Trinity. God’s goodness abounds!”
