The Conrad N. Hilton Foundation awarded a grant to St. Catherine University in St. Paul, Minn., to launch National Catholic Sisters Week during March 8-14 in conjunction with Women’s History Month. The purpose of this week is to raise awareness of the contributions of women religious by highlighting their lives and legacies.

The Ursuline Sisters of Mount Saint Joseph invite you to celebrate this week by serving those in need in honor of an Ursuline Sister who has inspired you. We urge you to recall the words of Saint Angela Merici, who told us to “Act, move, believe, strive, hope, cry out to him with all your heart, for without doubt you will see marvelous things, if you direct everything to the praise and glory of his majesty and the good of souls.”

The Ursuline Sisters don’t need you to do something for us. As always, we need you to work with us as we continue to minister to those God has called us to serve. It may not be something new, but any random act of kindness that occurs because of the inspiration of an Ursuline Sister is a blessing to the sisters, the participants and to God’s kingdom.

Please share with us any of your random of acts of kindness on behalf of the Ursuline Sisters and we’ll share them to inspire others. Email information and photos to dan.heckel@maplemount.org. God bless your support of women religious everywhere.

    I have always felt a need to administer in some way to the Homeless and People in Need by working at the Help Office, and St. Vincent de Paul.

    Sister Margret Louise was a wonderful person, Mother at the Mount and Principle at St Paul High school wher I graduate in 1956.
