Be kind and compassionate toward each other.


We Are Ursuline

The Ursuline Sisters of the Roman Union, Central Province, are members of a worldwide community whose lives and mission are rooted in the Gospel of Jesus and the spirit of our foundress, St. Angela Merici. We are grounded and empowered by our relationships with God and one another, in prayer and community, seeking always to be a compassionate, reconciling presence of God in our world.

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.

Need a Prayer?

The Ursuline spirit is rooted in and draws its nourishment from prayer. It is our face-to-face encounter with the living God. We will gladly pray for your intentions.
