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.

Commitment to Justice

As part of an international community, we are able to impact the lives of women on six continents. Advocacy, action and prayer are the hallmarks of our approach. We journey with those who are marginalized in our society and support the tradition of social justice as a key component of an Ursuline education.

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.

We had our first freshman visit at the province yesterday, and more came from UA-St. Louis today. The girls got a history and charism tour and talk with Sister Elisa, then joined more of our sisters in the meeting room for cookies and conversation.

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
