Feast of Saint Angela Merici

Today, 27th January, we join with Ursuline Sisters across the world in celebrating the feast day of our foundress, Saint Angela Merici (1474-1540).  It was a Angela who had the vision of a new way for women to consecrate their lives to God and to remain living in the midst of the world.  Her emphasis was on bringing Gospel values to the heart of the family and society.  Today we rejoice and give thanks for her inspiration, her courage and conviction that a “leading a new life” was and remains possible for women in  every time and place.

Today we ask her intercession for all who call themselves daughters of Angela on five continents, our associates, family, friends and those whose lives we touch in our varied ministries. Let us remember one another in prayer and celebrate a great lady!
