Preserving our treasured past

One of our archive rooms

We have a wealth of historical items from our nearly 150 years of ministry, some of which you see here.

They represent the commitment by all Ursuline Sisters of Youngstown — past, present and hopefully
future! — to serve God’s people here in the Mahoning Valley.

Sisters Patricia McNicholas, left, Carole Suhar, other Sisters and a Motherhouse are preserving our treasured record.

An aspect of legacy planning we’re focusing on is archiving — preserving not only our historical documents but also our digital record.

We started with blueprints and are now moving to photos and other historic items, moving all of our important documents to a digital platform.

Many of our Sisters and employees are excited to be part of this initiative.
