Ursuline Sisters of Cleveland Sponsorship

Introduction


Though Ursuline College is organized as a private corporation with its own independent Board of Trustees, the institution maintains close ties to its founders, the Ursuline Sisters of Cleveland. This relationship is formally acknowledged through the establishment of a sponsorship arrangement whereby the religious community engages in ongoing interactions with members of the College community. The following sponsorship statement expresses the characteristics of this relationship:


Sponsorship Statement


The Ursuline Sisters of Cleveland, Ohio are committed to the transformation of society by spreading the Gospel message of Jesus Christ. Acting as God's instruments we reconcile and empower others to be Good News for all God's people, giving special emphasis to families, women, the economically poor, and the powerless. We stand as a sign of hope and healing in our world.

True to St. Angela's charism to be open to the Spirit, dynamically adaptable to society's changing needs and sensitive to women's needs, we see our individual ministries as well as our service in sponsored institutions as characterized by Gospel values of:
