About the Ursuline Sisters

The Ursuline Sisters of Youngstown are teachers, hospital chaplains, counselors, social workers, administrators, spiritual directors, pastoral associates, prison ministers, advocates for the poor and religious education professionals.

Our name comes from St. Ursula, a 3rd century virgin and martyr. Our heritage comes from St. Angela Merici, a 16th century saint.

We are energized and sustained by our relationship with Jesus and the story of St. Angela. Angela’s yearning to live a life reflective of Jesus inspires us to serve the God who loves unconditionally. We hope to nurture that yearning in others.

Through many ministries, each Ursuline Sister of Youngstown is a nurturing presence reaching out to the people of northeast Ohio.
