Happy Foundation Day & Happy Thanksgiving Day


Happy Foundation Day of the Company of St. Ursula! 

486 years ago today, on November 25, 1535, St. Angela Merici founded the Company of St. Ursula which became the Ursuline sisters.

On this feast day of St. Catherine of Alexandria, Angela Merici gathered with the first 28 members of the Company of St. Ursula to sign the book of the Company, thereby making their commitment to a life of virginity, service, and love for all people. They lived in the midst of family, workplace, and local community. The group would meet regularly for prayer and would be visited by the local leaders in the Company.

Happy Feast Day who all who claim Angela as their Foundress. May this day be filled with many blessings!

Happy Thanksgiving Day to all too!  We have much to be grateful for this day.
