Change and Investment

This Saturday, we had a meeting of 4 of our School Board and administration teams to discuss how we as Ursulines will continue to sponsor our schools in the future and what administrators feel is needed at this time. Present at the meeting were representatives of Ursuline Academy, Dedham, Massachusetts Academy of Mt. St. Ursula, the Bronx, New York, The Ursuline School, New Rochelle, NY and Ursuline Academy, Wilmington, Delaware. It was a good meeting. It is nice to know that we want our Ursuline legacy and heritage to continue in the future. But we also want to keep faithful to Angela's words of "If according to times and circumstances, it is necessary to make changes, then do so with prudence and good advice."

On Sunday, I then gathered with some of my sisters who formed the St. Angela's Community in the Bronx for over 25 years. We met and shared about what was going on in our lives and prayed together. We talked about how we sometimes have to change the degree of investment we put into a ministry or community situation depending on what else is happening in our life at the time. I was left thinking - Where should my main investment be right now? That is going to be my prayer focus this week.
