Free Lecture on History of Ursuline Sisters

McCormickJoin Sister Mary McCormick, General Superior of the Ursuline Sisters of Youngstown and Professor and Academic Dean with St. Mary Seminary and Graduate School of Theology in Cleveland, as she offers the free lecture Sisters Faith: 140 Years of Ursuline Sisters in Youngstown Thurs., Nov. 20 from noon-1 p.m. at the Tyler Mahoning Valley History Center in downtown Youngstown. It’s part of the Mahoning Valley Historical Society’s highly popular Bites & Bits luncheon series.
You can brown-bag your own lunch or order one for $6 from the Overture restaurant at the DeYor Performing Arts Center across the street from the Tyler building.
On Sept. 18, we marked the 140th anniversary of the Ursuline Sisters in Youngstown. The Ursulines began by teaching at St. Columba School and then had a long history of teaching at the elementary and high school levels.
Sister Mary’s talk will reflect on this history with stories and photos, and tell how 140 years later, Ursuline Sisters continue to minister to the people of the greater Youngstown area, participating in Christian formation at all stages of life and meeting the needs of God’s people in collaboration with others.
