Experience our Ed & Wellness Center

We treasure the talents of our Prayer Shawl Ministry members.

Hundreds of people visit our Ursuline Education & Wellness Center for a host of education and wellness programs.

The land classes offer low-impact exercise classes at a moderate pace, including our Yoga stretch classes.

Our pool facility, which is nearly finished with major renovations and repairs, offers water aerobics.

The 2023 guided walk season for Ursuline Center Labyrinth is being planned and will begin in May. People of all denominations come on their own to the labyrinth for prayer and meditation every day of the year.

Our monthly Prayer Shawl Ministry, with an average of 20 crafters ages 55 to 94, knit and crochet shawls that are donated to The Hope Care Center, Southern Care Hospice, Ursuline Sisters HIV/AIDS Ministry, breast cancer survivors, and any individuals in need of prayer and healing.

Before a shawl is donated, ministry members pray over it, attaching a crucifix and a written prayer. In the last 10 years, members of this ministry have knitted over 3,600 shawls! Some are sent all over the world, including once to Lima, Peru!

Our Prison Ministry, led by Sister Nancy Dawson, continues to educate inmates at the Ohio State Penitentiary (OSP) about the Catholic faith. Sister Nancy ministers on-site at OSP with a team of nine vowed religious women and clergymen.

In 2022, 13 inmates were initiated into the Catholic Faith after their time with our ministry, which included supplying reading materials and teaching them how to pray the rosary. Members of our Community Outreach Ministry support the men through letter-writing.

Since 2010, the Ursuline Center Book Club has gathered and discussed books every six weeks, while the Spiritual Book Club gathers one afternoon each month. Members are united in faith and choose books that are spiritual in nature. During their monthly gatherings, they discuss the meaning of the book with regard to their own lives.
