Spiritual Life

Mission and Goals of Spiritual Life


“Never cease to cultivate this vine which has been entrusted to you” -St. Angela Merici

Saint Ursula Academy is grounded in the spirit and wisdom of St. Angela Merici, the foundress of the Ursuline Sisters. We seek to cultivate the spiritual life of young women, welcoming students, parents, faculty, and staff of all faiths. Nurtured through their four years at Saint Ursula Academy, it is our hope that students will aspire to:

· Recognize and appreciate God’s presence within all people.

· Grow in understanding of Jesus’ life and teachings.

· Nourish their spirituality through prayer, retreats, liturgies, and service-learning opportunities.

· In light of the Gospel and Catholic tradition, discern how to live with moral integrity when confronted with personal and systemic ethical challenges.

· Reflect on the questions and challenges arising in their spiritual journeys; explore how these are illuminated through the Religion Department’s course of studies.

· Develop as women of faith, called to be prophetic leaders in our local and global communities.
