Saint Ursula’s Feast Day

Today across the globe Ursuline Sisters, colleagues, companions, students in schools and colleges and friends celebrate the feast day of Saint Ursula, our Patroness, chosen by Angela Merici as the name by which her Company would be known.  Angela chose Ursula for her courage, her faithful witness of her faith and her virginity – for which she was martyred in the city of Cologne.  Today Saint Ursula is the patron of the city of Cologne.

We send greetings today to our Ursuline Sisters on all five continents, and ask Saint Ursula to continue to watch over us and be our inspiration for our lives.
