Remembering the first Ursulines

Today the Feast of Saint Catherine of Alexandria we celebrate our foundation day.  On this day in 1535 the first 28 Ursulines signed the Book of the Company of Saint Ursula in the presence of our foundress Saint Angela Merici, in the city of Brescia, Italy.  We give thanks for their commitment, their example and their inspiration which we strive to keep alive across the world today.

We send greetings today to our Ursuline sisters on all five continents and all who are inspired by the vision of Saint Angela.
