All is Interconnected - Life and Mission from the Perspective of Integral Ecology

As a global community of religious women we are committed to listening deeply as God speaks to us through every encounter – with our neighbour, with the earth, with the entire cosmos. Each person has a part to play in caring for our common home and its future. Together we recognise the gifts and respond to the challenges which face us as we deepen our commitment to an Integral Ecology. All is sacred, and all is interconnected.

Ursulines of the Roman Union - Who we are?

Ursuline spirituality finds its first source in the Gospel and the following of Christ. It is enriched specifically by the spirituality of our foundress Saint Angela Merici.

Angela’s spirituality was centered on her intimate relationship to Jesus Christ who was her “only life and hope”.


Prayer Intentions

Dear Sister,
As a global community we will pray for a different Province, Group, Community dependent on the Generalate and other intentions of the Institute each day of the month.

Prayer for the deceased sisters

“We will all see each other in heaven,
for the Lover of us all wants this too”.
st Angela Merici

Let us pray for our Sisters whom it has pleased God to call to Himself
