The Sisters of Notre Dame of Coesfeld is a Catholic religious institute.
The congregation was founded in Coesfeld, Germany, during a time of religious and social need. In 1849 a young teacher, Hilligonde Wolbring, out of love for the poor, took orphaned and neglected children into her home. Together with Elisabeth Kuhling, her friend and colleague, she educated and cared for them. Both women had been formed in the spiritual and pedagogical tradition of Bernard Overberg.
