Sisters, Religious and Biological

Religious vocations come to men and women in a variety of ways, such as through the examples of priests or sisters in our lives whether they are our pastor or teacher. Sometimes these examples come from our own families. Regardless of how the inspiration came, it is always from the Holy Spirit. In the gift of religious vocations, God did not put a “One per family” limit on who was called to give their life to him and his people. Below is a list of biological sisters who became Ursuline Sisters of Mount St. Joseph. Stay tuned for the next installment of the biological sisters from Belleville and Paola!
