Welcome to Ursuline Sisters of Chatham

We are Ursuline Sisters, a community of committed women religious striving to respond in meaningful ways to the challenge of the Gospel. Strengthened by God’s steadfast love and inspired by our founder, St. Angela Merici, we seek to deepen our relationships with God, others and all creation.

About The Ursuline Sisters Chatham

Our Focus

Contemplatives In Action

Nourished by our relationship with the Divine, the Holy One who calls us by name, we are energized and empowered to reach out in compassion to all God’s people and to our vulnerable Earth.

Pilgrims In Service

We respond with flexibility to the needs of our time, continually seeking out new ways to be with others in a spirit of mutuality. We explore innovative ways to engage in prayer and service.

United In Our Quest

Attentive to the Spirit’s voice in our hearts, impelled by Gospel values and in tender compassion for all God’s creation, we open ourselves to the Divine Mystery manifested in our daily lives.

We Are Justice Seekers

With a particular focus on the needs of women and girls, we work together and collaborate with people of good will to advocate and assist those who are vulnerable including our fragile Earth.
