Ursuline Ministries: In the Valley for Good

Ursuline Ministries: In the Valley for Good

As part of our legacy planning, we’ve created the corporation Ursuline Ministries.

This new entity is led by Brigid Kennedy, formerly our HIV/AIDS Ministry co-director. Dan Wakefield has been named Director of our HIV/AIDS Ministry.

Ursuline Ministries comprises Beatitude House, Ursuline Sisters HIV/AIDS Ministry, Ursuline Preschool and Kindergarten, Ursuline Sisters Senior Living and The Ursuline Center ministries.

You can find out more about the good work done by our ministries by visiting Our Life and Ministries.

The creation of Ursuline Ministries is part of a long-range plan that acknowledges the good, creative work of the Ursuline Sisters of Youngstown, past and present, and the fact that there are fewer of us than in previous years.

Over the last few decades, our ministerial relationships with lay colleagues have been very fruitful. The creation of this corporation, and an advisory board, will help our ministries to bear much fruit going forward.

Pictured here are members of the board, which is accountable directly to the Ursuline Sisters. At the top row from left are Sisters Patricia McNicholas, Mary McCormick, chairperson of the board, and Norma Raupple. Middle row is Brigid Kennedy, Ursuline Ministries president. Front row are Frank Dixon, Patricia Fleming, Scott Schulick and Shelia Triplett. Missing from the photo are Sister Regina Rogers, Mary Beth Houser and Patrick Lowry.

This group will help us strengthen mission integration and develop legacy planning to keep our vital ministries vibrant for decades to come.

Additionally, we’re grateful for a $10,000 grant from the Sisters of Charity Foundation of Cleveland which it bestowed to help with our legacy planning and ministry coordination efforts.
