The Ursuline Sisters of Mount Saint Joseph serve thousands of people each year. We help people in their search for God by fulfilling our mission of education and Christian formation. We educate in schools, universities and religious education programs. We serve in social ministries which provide clothing, shelter, food and nursing skills to those in need. Our work in eight states and Chillan, Chile in South America provides educational and spiritual opportunities. You can be a partner in this mission.
