Since their establishment in 1874, the Ursuline Sisters of Youngstown have been beacons of hope, catalysts for change, and champions of education, spirituality, and social justice.

“We are really committed to helping all of the people here, those who are poor, those who need help with their own homes, those who are living with HIV/AIDS, and people who are struggling to make it into the traditional education system, said Sister Mary McCormick.”

The Ursuline Sisters of Youngstown believe their longevity is due to the ability to adapt with the times.

“Our founder Angela Merici would say, change with the times and respond to the needs of the times and we’re doing that with our new assisted living units, said Sister Patricia McNicholas.”

The Ursuline Sisters of Youngstown are expanding, adding 45 units of licensed assisted living. Ten of which will be for memory care, and will be available to the sisters and the public. The project is expected to be completed, Summer of 2025.

The official Anniversary date is September 18th, and to celebrate The Ursuline Sisters are hosting a Fundraiser Dinner on September 22nd after mass.
