Dear Friends,

Ursuline Sisters of Louisville raised their voices in prayer and songs for peace for the men women and children of Ukraine.  Sister Yuli Onihuary, OSU traveled to Juarez, Mexico, to minister to refugees with the IHM Sisters. Louisville and Mount St. Joseph Ursulines co-signed a statement with three other religious communities calling upon elected representatives to pass gun control laws.

March 2022

Dear Friends,

Ursuline Sisters of Louisville celebrated St. Angela’s Feast Day with fun and funds. The sisters transferred $4.2 million Chapel Preservation Fund to Sacred Heart Schools. Sisters committed to the Laudato Si’ Action Platform in late October. The tornado that struck Mayfield, KY in December, 2021 was very personal for the Ursuline Sisters of Louisville’s Ginny Schaefer, Director of Angela Merici Center for Spirituality. Sisters and Sacred Heart Academy Students and Staff joined efforts to support the victims with much needed donations.

Dear Friends,

While we still are coping, giving and connecting during this time of uncertainty with the COVID-19 virus, we continue to call for peace and justice in our world. We are including some of our photos on praying for peace on the 75th anniversary of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings, walking with Black Catholics for Justice, a thank you to our 2014-20 Leadership team, welcome to the new team and our Chapter Statement. We continue to pray for peace and work for justice.

June 2020

Dear Friends,

While we were (and still are) trying to find ways of coping, giving and connecting during this time of uncertainty with the COVID-19 virus, a wave of protests calling for reform started in response to the recent killings of black Americans by police and armed citizens. We are including some of our photos and thoughts on standing peacefully for justice in this issue of In Your Midst. Black lives DO matter. We can and must DO better.
