This week the nation looks at education

I find it appropriate as I was reading our URSULINE WAY OF LIFE: Constitutions and Book of Directives to note that under the Orgins of the Congregation states:

“As patroness of her new work in the Church, Saint Angela Merici chose Saint Ursula, a virgin martyr of the early Church and a special patroness of learning.”

It is evident in the mission and ministry of our sisters that education and learning is a hallmark. St. Ursula, patroness of learning, intercede for us and touch the hearts of others to join us in our misson of Education and Christian formation.

I quote again from our constitution. We, the Ursuline Sisters of Mount Saint Joseph, are a community of women religious who come together attending holiness. We freely answer the loving call of God by dedicating our lives and our gifts to God in the service of he Church. -Ursuline Way of Life, “Our Charism”, paragraph #1)
