About Us

The Ursuline Sisters of Mount Saint Joseph are a vibrant group of women who minister to the needs of the communities in which they serve, in areas such as education, pastoral ministry, nursing, social justice and a variety of other arenas where they have been called by God. The Ursuline Sisters currently serve in six states, Washington, D.C., and in Chile, South America.

They are guided by their core values of Prayer, Service, Empowerment, Justice and Contemplative Presence, all in the spirit of their founder, Saint Angela Merici. If you’ve met an Ursuline Sister of Mount Saint Joseph, chances are you were greeted warmly, served passionately and listened to as if you were the most important person she has ever met.

This website reflects just some of the ways the Ursuline Sisters are reaching out to serve God’s kingdom on earth. We welcome you to find out more.
