St.Ursula, our patronessFounders and foundresses are among the prophets of the New Testament – chosen by God and commissioned with a task which is identical with the pressing need of their contemporary society – both within and without the Catholic Church. These great men and women fulfill their mission through activities that best answers the need. Thus St. Angela Merici recognized in her own day the urgent need of educating the young girls and preparing them for life assuring their responsibility and role as benefit their particular state of life. To this end she founded a congregation named after “St.Ursula” who was honoured as a patroness and model of educators of the young. This practice was followed not only in Italy, but all over Europe by similar Institutions founded for education and Christian formation of young girls.
