Equipes  Notre- Dame (Teams of Our Lady) is




For those of us who are married and Christian, our marriage and our relationship with God are of the utmost importance in our lives.  However, during the course of our lives we may not always give them the priority their importance demands.  Pope Francis describes his recent Exhortation on love in the family, Amoris Laetitia - The Joy of Love, as representing “ an invitation to Christian families to value the gifts of marriage and the family, and to persevere in a love strengthened by the virtues of generosity, commitment, fidelity and patience, (while encouraging) everyone to be a sign of mercy and closeness wherever family life remains imperfect or lacks peace and joy”.(5) 

Equipes Notre-Dame (Teams of Our Lady) has been committed to these aims and values since its foundation in 1939. We extend an invitation to you, in line with that of Pope Francis, to take a few minutes to learn about our movement on this website, beginning with Teams  Ireland, About Us.  We have been in Ireland for over 50 years. We can help to increase your awareness and appreciation of the value of the gifts of marriage and the family. We can provide the inspiration and support you may need to strengthen your relationships with your husband/wife and with God, thus making your love fruitful for you as a couple and for your family, community and society. You in turn can greatly strengthen our movement at a time when marriage and the family face so many challenges.
