Book Launch – Bound by the Bonds of Love

Yesterday evening Ursulines, colleagues, associates, family members and friends gathered on zoom for the launch of the book – Bound by the Bonds of Love – which tells the story of the forty years of the Union of Irish Ursulines. The book was written by John Scally who spent several weeks visiting with and listening to the stories of Ursuline Sisters in Ireland, Wales and Kenya.
It was in 1978 that three autonomous Ursuline monasteries in Ireland and their foundations, Cork, Sligo and Thurles came together to form the Union joined three years later by Waterford. Over these forty years the bonds of love and cooperation grew and matured until in 2018 the Union together joined the larger Roman Union of Ursulines becoming the Province of Ireland, Wales, Kenya.
We thank Fr Donal Dorr SPS for formally launching the book, John Scally for telling the story for us, to M. Susan Flood, Prioress General and all who joined us by Zoom for the moment of remembering, giving thanks and looking forward together…
