Ursuline Associates and Sisters came together June 11, 2016, at the Mount Saint Joseph Conference and Retreat Center for a wonderful Associates and Sisters Day titled “Opening Doors of Mercy.” Keynote speaker Lisa M. Gulino related Pope Francis’ call for Year of Mercy to how each person can show mercy to others and to themselves.
Eleven people became Ursuline Associates in the afternoon, and five others who had made an initial commitment received their permanent pins. Four Associates shared how their lives had been affected by acts of mercy during the afternoon panel discussion. The day was concluded with Mass, in which the presider was Father Joe Mills, who was celebrating his 30th year as an Ursuline Associate.
Here are pictures from the day.
