The Company of St Ursula offers a way of consecrated life to lay women seeking to dedicate the entirety of their lives to Christ while continuing to work in their chosen field. Are you drawn:

  • To deepen your relationship with Christ,to commit your life more deeply to following Christ?
  • Do you feel called to live this way within the ordinary circumstances of life being as "salt for the earth and light for the world"?
  • Do you want to belong with others who share this vocation?

The Company of St Ursula was founded by St Angela Merici in Brescia, in northern Italy, on 25 November, 1535. St Angela gathered a group of women together who promised their lives to God and to live the evangelical counsels of poverty, chastity and obedience while remaining in their own homes and places of work. Not wanting to call the Company after herself, she chose St Ursula, a popular saint at the time, to be the patroness. Both Sts Angela and Ursula were women who had the faith and confidence to hear the Spirit of Truth speaking in their hearts and the courage to be different in order to live that truth.

Who are we? Where are we?
