St. Angela Merici’s Feast Day is January 27th!

Happy Feast Day!!!

Today is the Feast of St. Angela Merici. She was an amazing woman. At the age of 65, in 1535, she founded the Ursuline Sisters. Angela gathered women together for prayer, community and reflection. The women were to serve others by meeting the needs of the times.

Angela’s wonderful words of advice to us:
You need not be anxious if you do your best.
Be kind and compassionate to another.
Give good example-teaching more by what you do than what you say.

Prayers and blessings to all those who have been touched by the Ursuline spirit and charism.  Thank you Angela!!
