OUR SISTERS SHARE
We are holding encounters between Sisters and the students, faculty and general community of Sacred Heart Schools, sponsored by the Ursulines, that will bring forward the areas of ministry important to the Sisters within the lens of tradition and change.
The topics covered will be:

The Ursuline Sisters of Louisville wish to thank the Sacred Heart Schools’ Office of Catholic Identity and Ursuline Charism in planning CSW 2023 encounters that celebrate the Ursuline Charism within established structures at SHS.
