Every three years since 1992, Ursuline Sisters from across the United States, Canada and Mexico have gathered for the Ursuline Convocation, a chance to reconnect with each other and the roots of their Ursuline heritage.
The 2019 Convocation was held in the Drury Plaza Hotel in St. Louis from July 25-28. There were 19 Ursuline Sisters and Associates of Mount Saint Joseph who attended, including four who led breakout sessions – Sisters Cheryl Clemons, Larraine Lauter and Michele Morek, and Associate Doreen Abbott.
The keynote speaker was Sister Teresa Maya, a member of the Congregation of the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word of San Antonio. A native of Mexico, Sister Teresa has her doctorate in education and is serving simultaneously as congregational leader for her community and as president of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious. The theme of the convocation was “Celebrating, Converging, Expanding Angela’s Family.” Here are pictures from the weekend.
