Companions of St. Marie of the Incarnation: The Companions of St. Marie are sisters and lay women who gather as a faith-sharing group. They are inspired by the life and writings of Blessed St. Marie of the Incarnation, the first North American Ursuline. St. Marie was a wife, mother, businesswoman, missionary, and mystic. The Companions meet four times a year to continue learning from the writings of St. Marie and to support each other as they apply her teachings to their own lives. Contact:  Maureen Grady, OSU, at 440-461-0066 ext. 103 or mgrady@stfrancisgm.org

Mission and Heritage: The goal of the Mission and Heritage Commission is to introduce members to the spirituality and charism of St. Angela Merici, to assist them in deepening their awareness of her unique Gospel living, and to encourage personal integration and action of the core values of Justice, Contemplation and Compassion. 

Angela Circles are small groups of lay women and men who come together once a month to study the life and spirituality of St. Angela Merici, and engage in related action. For more information contact: S. Joan Petersen, jpetersen@ursulinesisters.org or 440-449-1200, ext 184.

Thomas Merton Group: The Thomas Merton group comes together monthly from September through May for lectures, films, retreats and discussions about Thomas Merton, his writings and topics relevant to his message: contemplation, monastic renewal, art and poetry, ecology, peace and justice, human rights, nuclear war, nonviolence, and interreligious dialogue.

Volunteers: At the Ursuline Sisters of Cleveland, volunteers enrich the life of our community and extend the Ursuline mission through their gifts of time and talent. Our volunteers feel rewarded by being able to give back to the women who have done so much for their own families and communities, and they simply enjoy the experience of working for and with the sisters. A variety of opportunities are available for both individuals and groups. To learn more about volunteer opportunities contact the volunteer coordinator, Maggie Gibson at mgibson@ursulinsisters.org or 440-449-1200 x.409.
