Strive to be faithful to that which God has called you.

St. Angela Merici

 

Dear Friends,

Welcome to the Ursuline Sisters of Tildonk, U.S. Province.

The story of the U.S. Province begins in 1924 when four Ursuline Sisters of Tildonk and two lay women arrived at The Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary Parish in Ozone Park, New York to serve as educators in Catholic Schools. Since then, our Sisters have expanded ministries far beyond Catholic education to social justice, health care, and human services social and pastoral ministries. Inspired by the life of St. Angela Merici and Father John Lambertz, our Sisters are committed to the mission of the universal Church and have made God known and loved by responding to the needs of all people.

These are challenging times for the Ursuline Sisters of Tildonk and we ask for your prayers as we move forward with joy and hope. Today, we are forty Sisters, the majority of whom have passed the traditional retirement age. These demographics, diminishing income, and increasing healthcare costs have required us to take a careful and realistic look at our finances as we prepare for the future.

We are grateful for your partnership and financial support as we care for our elderly Sisters. Your generosity helps to build the foundation for a bright and secure future. Please know that all of our Sisters pray daily for you and your intentions.

Gratefully,

Sister Joanne Callahan

Province Leader
