Who we are

The Congregation of the Ursuline Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Mary is a Religious Institute, aroused by the Spirit through Mother Giovanna Meneghini’s mediation.


Heirs and bearers of the foundress’s charisma, the Ursuline Sisters are called to live the experience of Christ the Servant, gentle and humble in heart, in a mission for woman’s salvation and sanctification.


The Institute has its inspiring fundament in Saint Angela Merici’s Rule. The Ursuline Sisters are gathered together in communities of sisters and their mission engage them to witness a style of active integration and to announce the evangelic message in their apostolic choices, with the public profession of religious vows.




The Church fully carries out its mission, if also the woman takes part to it with the specific gifts of her being.


With this awareness  the Ursuline Sisters announce the fundamental feminine vocation to take care of life in all its expressions ad to operate so that the institutions reach the suitability to serve the person.


According to the foundress’s choice and the ursuline tradition, the Ursuline Sisters take part to the Church’s evangelizing work promoting a Christian culture in the educative, pastoral and social service, especially for women’s development, in the cultural contexts where they live and operate.
