The Archives of the Ursuline Sisters of Louisville, Kentucky

The Archives of the Ursuline Sisters of Louisville is currently the repository for the permanent historical records of the Ursuline Sisters of Louisville in Louisville, Kentucky.

Women Religious Archives Collaborative

In 2021, the Ursuline Sisters of Louisville Leadership Team committed to joining the Women Religious Archives Collaborative (WRAC). WRAC will build a facility in Cleveland that will be a permanent repository for the archival collections of more than a dozen women religious congregations from the region, including the Ursuline Sisters of Louisville. It will offer researchers a centralized hub to study the records of numerous congregations in one location. In addition, the building will include space for exhibits and programs to engage with the public about women religious.

Currently, 28 congregations have joined WRAC, including three other Ursuline congregations: the Ursuline Sisters of Cincinnati, Toledo, and Cleveland. There is also another community from Kentucky on board: the Sisters of Loretto.
