Meeting Today’s Needs
Known primarily as educators, Ursulines remain active in the schools as sponsors and board members, with some sisters holding teaching, support and mission positions. But today we serve in a multitude of ways, reaching out to the poor and marginalized in our communities and beyond, with special focus on the needs of women and children. We serve in spiritual and social services fields with outreach to immigrants, the dying, elderly, homeless and other disenfranchised populations.
You can find us working with clients in food pantries, sharing the Gospel with women in jail, and teaching English in the living rooms of immigrant women. We minister to the homeless in inner cities and are active in eco-spirituality. We tutor economically disadvantaged girls, visit the elderly who are homebound or in nursing homes, and work with young people discerning their vocations.
According to the needs of the times, we are a voice for justice, peace and integrity of creation. We are spiritual guides and prayer companions while offering our own prayers for the world and all who are in need.
