Ursuline Sisters of Youngstown
The Ursuline Sisters of Youngstown are Catholic Nuns who respond together to meet the critical needs of God’s people in Youngstown and northeast Ohio and have since 1874. St. Angela Merici founded the Ursuline order in Italy in 1535. She was a woman of faith and vision who served the Church and sought to be an instrument of change in her world. Today we live Gospel values, desire to deepen our relationship with Christ, support one another in community, and strive to make a difference in the world. The Ursuline Sisters of Youngstown minister in the areas of education, health care, social service, parish work and more, focusing on but not limited to poverty, immigrant and disadvantaged populations. The Ursuline Sisters sponsor several nonprofit programs. These include Beatitude House, HIV/AIDS Ministry, Young Adult Outreach, the Ursuline Center, Ursuline Preschool and Kindergarten and Dorothy Day House.
