The Motherhouse Chapel of the Immaculate Conception is 100 years old. The Chapel is a sacred space used for liturgies and prayer services for the sisters, campus school students and faculty, alumnae, alumni, associates and the larger faith community. It is where sisters celebrate jubilees, funerals, holy days and special events. It is where the ‘Mass of the Air’ is taped and seen by hundreds of homebound Catholics. The century old structure dedicated in 1917, is currently in need of repairs and updates. The list includes: ADA accessibility, plaster, painting, carpet, floor tile replacement and cleaning, stained glass window screens, an energy efficient water heater and boiler that will also provide service to the sisters' living quarters in the Motherhouse. The Preservation Fund goal is $3.5 million to be completed by 2020. We are halfway there. Continue this source of ministry with your donation.
Supporting Sisters in Ministry
The Ursuline Sisters are devoted to ministries that focus on enabling men, women and children to live a full and dignified life, and develop a personal relationship with God. We serve others as educators, spiritual ministers, healthcare professionals and administrators. Whether it’s serving on the staff at a food pantry, or bringing Catholic education to children in impoverished areas, volunteer and serve at ministries that align with their commitment to Christian Living. Your support of this ministry will allow us to increase our funding of educational and ministerial endeavors that we feel are in most need.
Angela Merici Center for Spirituality
The Angela Merici Center for Spirituality, which is sponsored by the Ursuline Sisters of Louisville, offers days of prayer, retreats, personal development workshops, and individual and group spiritual direction. It strives to be a resource for individuals and communities that seek a deeper relationship with God. Your support of the Center allows us to continue developing workshops, retreats and services that nurture the hearts, minds and spirits of individuals in the Louisville area.
In 1963, Pope John XXIII asked men and women religious to send missionaries to South America. The Ursuline Sisters of Louisville responded by sending four sisters to oversee education, skills training, spiritual and catechetical formation in rural villages. Today, Ursuline Sisters remain, expanding their ministries to healthcare and social justice by serving the rural poor and marginalized. Your support of the Peru ministry assists our sisters with addressing issues of poverty, domestic violence, illiteracy, poor health and pollution.
