St. Angela Merici founded the Order of St. Ursula in 1535, in Brescia, Italy. She gathered a group of women who became leaders in the community and promoted Christian living in the home. The Ursulines spread throughout Europe and their chief work became education.
The Ursulines at our school are members of the Ursulines of the Roman Union. These sisters operate 15 secondary schools in the United States, 4 colleges, and a number of elementary schools. They also minister in 36 countries on 6 continents.
