Today we celebrate the 481st anniversary of the Foundation of the Company of St. Ursula by Angela Merici. Angela was a woman who knew the needs of her time and responded. She was a woman of deep prayer, personal love of Jesus and was not afraid to take risks. Angela continues to encourage her followers to do the same. The simple beginning in Brescia, Italy has blossomed into a worldwide institute. Happy Foundation Day to all Ursuline sisters, associates, companions, alums, students and colleagues. May St. Angela continue to watch over us all our days!
