Twice a week during these 62 weeks, the Ursuline Sisters of Mount Saint Joseph will feature a different sister’s vocation story. Click here to learn more.

Lenten Prayer

"Merciful Father, I know that the tiny sacrifices I make this Lent can never serve as a real penance in my life. But help me to make my whole life one of following your Son. I am filled with your love. Let your love shine out from within me and guide my life in this sacred journey toward the Easter joy you offer me." -Creighton Ministries Click here for the prayer network.

 

We, the Ursuline Sisters of Mount Saint Joseph, sustained by prayer and vowed life in community, proclaim Jesus through education and Christian formation in the spirit of our founder, Saint Angela Merici.

Our Core Values are Prayer, Service, Empowerment, Justice, and Contemplative Presence. We strive to serve others with a welcoming spirit, and commit ourselves to “Freeing and nurturing women and children.”
