Global Reach

Ursulines serve the people of God around the world. Africa, Asia Central and South America are places where Ursulines minister through education and social outreach to local needs.

Ursulines from the United States, including the Central Province, have been part of the Catholic Church’s efforts to speak the Gospel to many nations through their lives of service.

Whether they are in Thailand, Indonesia, Botswana or Venezuela, Ursulines began their ministries by founding schools, later extending their service to meet local needs. Ways in which they have extended their ministry include initiating new farming methods, caring for victims of AIDS, bringing catechetical and sacramental services to remote areas, and working for social justice.
