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.

Happy Birthday, Sister Carla. I am Lydia Gomez. I first met you as my fantastic principal at St Peter’s School in Laredo, TX. Then, as my fun History teacher at Ursuline Academy in Laredo. I have shared stories about how cool, amazing and influential you were for impressionable girls in the late 60’s and early 70’s countless times. May God bless you for all you’ve done in your career of service. Serviam. 🥰

On October 21, the Feast of St. Ursula, we pray: 

Loving God, St. Ursula’s story has been the inspiration for countless women and men throughout Christian history, but most especially for St. Angela Merici. The power of insieme to unite and strengthen people of faith to do Your will is palpable in every age. We give You thanks and praise for placing people of wisdom, courage, strength, compassion and love in our midst. Guide us as we continue to tell their stories and to bear witness to the ability their convictions have to bring us closer to Your Son Jesus. We ask this in His name. Amen.
