Welcome to the Young Ursulines – Rome 2017

From July 2nd to 10th 2017 the Roman Union of the Order of Saint Ursula hosted a meeting of young Ursuline Sisters from fourteen provinces with sisters invited from Vietnam, Kenya and Ireland to join the gathering.  The welcome was given by M. Cecilia Wang, Prioress General along with the five members of her council, the Secretary General and Bursar General.  At the meeting we were joined also by Ursuline sisters who shared their lived wisdom of Ursuline life from different perspectives.

The days together included much time to get to know each other, to share about our Ursuline life lived in different countries, prayer together, exploration of scripture, sharing the gift of Angela Merici, the experience of mission, the ministry of Ursuline education in all its forms, as well as a day of voluntary service to the poor of Rome.

It was truly a life giving, enriching experience which offers us much to reflect upon as Ursulines in our time and place…
