Congressman, Mayor Honor Ursuline Sisters of Youngstown with Proclamations U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan and Youngstown Mayor John A. McNally have issued proclamations honoring the Ursuline Sisters of Youngstown as we begin celebrating 140 years of ministry in the Mahoning Valley. We are grateful to the congressman and mayor for issuing these recognitions. Reading the mayor’s recognition is our Leadership Team: seated are Sisters Mary McCormick, General Superior, and Sister Regina Rogers. Standing are Sisters Patricia McNicholas and Norma Raupple. On Sept. 18, our official anniversary, the Ursuline Sisters of Youngstown were recognized by WYTV when Stan Boney interviewed Sister Mary McCormick. WYSU’s program Doing Good, hosted by Gina Marinelli, also recently featured Sister Mary and recognized our anniversary. Sister Mary will speak about the Ursuline Sisters’ long history in the greater Youngstown area at the Mahoning Valley Historical Society’s Bites and Bits luncheon lecture series Nov. 20 from noon to 1 p.m. at the Tyler Mahoning Valley History Center on Federal Street in downtown Youngstown.
