KNOW ~ LOVE ~ SERVE
In the early 1950s, Archbishop Duke invited religious orders from across North America to come to Vancouver to establish a high school to educate the children of ten Catholic parishes in east Vancouver and Burnaby including Corpus Christi, Holy Cross, Immaculate Heart of Mary, St. Francis of Assisi, St. Helen's, St. Jude's, St. Mary's, St. Theresa's, Our Lady of Sorrows & Sacred Heart. The Sisters of Charity of Halifax accepted his challenge, and in 1953 Notre Dame opened its doors for the first time.
Notre Dame Alumni Foundation gratefully acknowledges that Notre Dame is a legacy of generous support from our feeder parishes, families, alumni, staff, and friends since the day it opened. In addition to these donors, special thanks are also due to the Roman Catholic Archdioceses of Vancouver for the support provided allowing Notre Dame to realize the 2021 completion of our new 750 student state of the art campus.
To date $24.2 million has been raised with additional fundraising needed to support the project’s $35 million actual cost. With the campus completion, we launch our "Welcome Home" campaign to raise the remaining $10 million needed to cover the cost of this amazing campus.
