If a life of prayer and service within a community resonates with your inner desire for a meaningful life dedicated to God, as Jesus revealed God, and in service of others as Jesus lived, here are some steps to take in order to satisfy your questions about the Ursuline way of living that dedication.

For an introduction to the Ursulines, click any of these: History, Prayer, Ministry to get to know us better.

The Web page called Vocation of a Consecrated Life explains the stages of incorporation into the life of an Ursuline. The page Community Life gives additional information.

In the Gospel Jesus chose disciples “who would be with him and be sent.” Prayer is time with Jesus that motivates where to be sent in our ministries of service. Ursuline life is rooted in prayer, and the period of initiation into this life guides development in prayer and your spiritual life leading to the joyful fulfillment of service to others.

As you respond to the invitation of the Holy Spirit, you will experience those gifts that the Spirit gives to keep you true to your response to God: love, joy, peace, patience. And that will lead you to the next steps.
