Volunteers currently serve the sisters in these roles:

Classroom Assistants – Sewing Class

Esperanza Threads is an Ursuline Sisters ministry that teaches industrial sewing skills to migrants and marginalized Clevelanders before assisting them with job placement. Classroom assistants know how to use a home sewing machine to construct a garment such as a t-shirt. Classes take place on the near-west side of Cleveland.


Drivers provide transportation for sisters living at Regina Healthcare in Richfield. Destinations are to appointments and occasionally to ministry assignments or to run errands. The sisters provide the car and gas.


Gardeners primarily water and weed flower beds around the sisters' home in Pepper Pike. Occasional planting may be done. Your creative suggestions for garden beautification are appreciated!


Receptionists staff a quiet reception desk at the sisters' home in Pepper Pike. They facilitate building access for sisters and visitors by operating the opening of the door as needed. They also assist occasional phone callers by connecting them with the sister or information they need.


Skilled sewers are needed to create items to be sold in the Ursuline Sisters Laurel Tree Gift Shop and at Ursuline Sisters craft tables at area craft shows. Volunteers may work at home after obtaining materials needed from the Gift Shop manager in Pepper Pike. Aprons, stuffed animals, pillows, and pot holders are examples of some of the items volunteers have created.
