Ursuline Sisters are women empowering others to be faithful to their mission in the church which continues God’s action in the world by extending the mission of Jesus through service and collaboration with like-minded people to meet the contemporary needs of society.
Ursuline Sisters dare to make a difference following in the footsteps of St. Angela Merici by founding ministries that educate for knowledge, self-determination and wisdom, are grounded in prayer and Jesus’ command to love one another through a world-wide vision of human interconnectedness.
Ursuline Sisters engage in diverse ministries that dare to make a difference!
Education: Teaching has been part of the Ursuline tradition from its beginnings. It’s a commitment to handing on the learning, skills, and wisdom that educate for living.
Ursuline Sisters teach and/or are serving at the following institutions:
Academy of Mount St. Ursula in the Bronx, NY, a Blue-Ribbon School for Excellence in Education, serves the constantly changing urban population of New York City and its environs by educating and empowering college-bound young women for leadership roles.
Ursuline Academy in Wilmington, DE, provides holistic education of mind, imagination, and spirit, and empowers students from pre-K to twelfth grad to be leaders in society and the church.
The Ursuline School in New Rochelle, NY, a Blue-Ribbon School for educational excellence, educates sixth to twelfth grade girls in a rigorous course of studies that empowers them for leadership in society and the church.
The College of New Rochelle and the Ursulines had a special and historical relationship. The college, founded in 1904, was the first Catholic college for women in New York State. It closed its doors in 2019. While opened, Ursulines served in a variety of ministries, as faculty, as administrators, and on the Board of Trustees. Its mission of service was its heritage and was the vision of its founders. Today the school lives on in its thousands of alumni who carry the traditions of The College of New Rochelle into the world.
