Ursuline Derby Day Cancelled

Dear friends;

In light of the serious pandemic and its related health risks, the Ursuline Sisters of Cleveland, like many other organizations across the country, are taking necessary precautions.

Along with the cancellation of our annual fundraiser as noted above, we have put safety regulations in place at both of our locations.  At Merici Crossings, the sisters’ residence, we are asking the sisters to refrain from receiving visitors until further notice. 

At our congregational offices on Parkland Blvd. we have communicated to our co-workers the importance of hand washing, sanitizing common areas, social distancing and staying home if they are ill.  We are also looking into the possibility of co-workers working remotely from home.

As we all endure this unique situation, please join us in prayer for all of those who are affected and infected by this disease.


Sister Susan Durkin
President, Ursuline Sisters of Cleveland
