“Saint Ursula Academy is a nurturing Catholic educational community founded in the Ursuline tradition. Saint Ursula encourages academic excellence and empowers each student to become a woman of faith, integrity and courage committed to building a better world.”
The Campus Ministry program at Saint Ursula Academy is where the religious activities are coordinated and implemented. The goal of the program is to encourage students to become strong leaders in their faith communities as well as the global community. Students are able to learn more about themselves and their gifts through prayer, worship, reflection, and annual retreats.
Some of the Campus Ministry activities include:
• Liturgies occur monthly and are planned and implemented by the student organization, The Campus Ministry Council. Students are trained as Eucharistic Ministers and Lectors and student musicians provide the worship music. Special Class Masses are held in the beginning of the school year in our beautiful Chapel.
• Prayer services
are held to celebrate the different liturgical seasons of Advent and Lent including Reconciliation Services for each class with the opportunity to go to confession. We also celebrate the Feast Day of St. Angela Merici, the foundress
of the Ursulines.
• Spiritual Journey Week is a time for all of faculty and students to take the time to focus on our spiritual growth and education through activities outside of the class room. The Freshmen and Sophomores spend the week with a focus on community service opportunities, Ursuline Heritage, and learning about diversity. Juniors spend the week on an overnight Retreat and in a recommitment service to their Academy Alum goals they discerned as Freshmen. Seniors make their Kairos retreat at some point at the end of their Junior year or in their Senior year and come together for a special 4th day prayer service. The end of Spiritual Journey culminates in a day of reflection and Closing Liturgy.
