At What Age Are Women Entering the Ursuline Sisters?

Welcome to our “Ask The Nun” series of informal videos. Today’s question focuses on the age of women becoming an Ursuline Sister. Sister Norma Raupple shares her answer.

Women enter the Ursuline Sisters at all ages…one of our newer members one was in her twenties and she joined while she was still in college.  Another woman was in her forties and she already had her master’s degree and had been teaching for a while.  She met the Ursulines when she came to Youngstown to give a year of service with the poor.   The third one was a nurse and she had already raised her two children when she met the Ursulines.  She found herself single again and was eligible to join the community.
