Serving God by Serving Others

Education has long been the hallmark of Ursuline ministries. At the same time, contemporary social conditions call for service directed to unmet social needs. Ursulines have responded in the spirit of St. Angela according to current circumstances. In all they do, Ursulines strive to fulfill the commitment of St. Angela to peace and reconciliation among peoples in a multicultural society.

At the invitation of the new owner of our former novitiate--and accompanied by some co-workers--we spent a lovely Saturday checking out the renovations and enjoying the views at the Crystal City, Mo., property. With an ATV at our disposal, we really got around! We admired the areas that already have been beautifully renovated, enjoyed lunch and shared not a few stories of our days as novices there. We gladly accepted an invitation to return next year. ... See MoreSee Less

In all of my years going to NOLA and working with SBP the most important thing I learned from SRM was what she stated….it’s about the people. So important to listen to their stories!

SRM is like the Energizer Bunny. She always has been. ❤️ God bless these sisters and the people they serve.

She’s incredible!

SRM is such a rockstar!!

Season of Creation 2021 begins tomorrow.

This year’s theme, “A home for all? Renewing the Oikos of God,” points to the integral web of relationships that sustain the well-being of the earth. Each creature is important and contributes to the health and resilience of the biodiverse ecosystem.

While we trust that God's Spirit is constantly renewing the face of the earth, we heed our call to care and sustain an ecological turning that will ensure all creatures can find their home to flourish and participate in renewing the earth.

This 2-minute video will tell you more.

Regard yourselves as ministers and servants reflecting that you have more need to serve them than they have to be served by you. -St. Angela Merici, First Counsel

Interested in joining Ursuline school communities for a day of serviam in May? May 14 is International Serviam Day, a dedicated day each year when Ursuline community members around the world come together to serve our local communities, further reinforcing our call to serve others.

The first Ursuline International Serviam Day was held in Spring 2017, when more than 50 students, parents and alumnae participated in service opportunities in the Dallas area. Individual alumnae in Asia and Europe served in their own communities, kicking off our global reach.

Now in its fifth year, International Serviam Day has expanded to include 10 Ursuline schools in the U.S. collaborating to create new service opportunities in cities across the nation and around the world.

If you would like to join us in living serviam on May 14, 2022, contact Karen Mortillaro, director of mission and identity, at www.ursulineschools@gmail.com.
