Vision of our Foundress

Blessed Brigida recognized that Jesus wanted every Ursuline to possess : Humility, self denial, purity of heart and the practice of walking constantly in the presence of God. It was her desire that her daughters should observe the Rules and Constitutions faithfully, they thus delight the heart of Jesus and He will reward them abundantly (RCC Pg.57).


Formation is a process of becoming increasingly a disciple of Christ and growing in union with Him. It is putting on the mind of Christ and sharing more deeply the gift of Himself to the Father.  It is a progressive growth, a dynamic movement open to constant conversion. Religious formation has to be based firmly on or experience of God in Jesus Chris through the practice of the evangelical counsels of chastity, poverty and obedience.

The primary objective of our formation is to prepare us for the total consecration of ourselves to God in the following of Christ and to enable us to be at the service of the Church’s mission (Const.107, 108). It is in the contemplation of the Crucified Christ that all vocations find their inspiration. From this contemplation, together with the primordial gift of the Spirit, all gifts, and in particular the gift of the consecrated life, take their origin.prfsn5prfsn7
