"Global Education"

An invitation from the Ursuline Educational Service in the USA

Les participants de notre Province

We have just experienced in the setting of the College of New Rochelle a very beautiful international congress. We were 5 representing France : 4 lay people and one Ursuline, from the schools in Vannes and Lyons. Invited by the Ursuline Educational Service of the USA, we came together to drink at the source the basis principles of our educational projects in the spirit of Angela Merici.

As Ursulines and lay people from different schools in 21 different countries, we experienced that we were all inspired by the same desire : educating young people today in an Ursuline manner and under the inspiration of our Mother Saint Angela. Many conferences rhythmed each day, for example one by Ann Garrido, author of a very interesting book, « Redeeming Administration » - 12 Spiritual Habits for Catholic Leaders. She shared the main thoughts with us during her talk, as did Sister Mary Virginia Orna, osu, Mary Cabrini Durkin, Diana Stano, osu, and other high quality speakers.

We visited the schools in New Rochelle and the Bronx ; they gave us a very warm welcome. Their young students were good witnesses there and their presentations were a real joy for them and for us.

We shall not forget our discovery of New York and Manhattan, with all their momentous places !

“ This global meeting around Saint Angela enriched us ! Everything was perfect, from the conferences on Ursuline values to our visits to the Ursuline schools, together with moments for praying and sharing. We were able to share on practices in our schools throughout in the whole world and were enriched by the speakers and their talks. Above all, we felt that we belonged fully to this beautiful community : we created bonds with the many countries represented during that week “. Mrs. Juliette Piquet-Gauthier, Lycée Icof

« The network of Ursuline Education is a source of great richness and strength ; we became quite aware of this in a meeting of such magnitude ! How lucky we were ! How dynamic it is to educate young people today throughout the world !” Sr. Catherine Meurillon

“We appreciated very much our participation in the Congress of New Rochelle. There were strong moments for meeting together and time for formation. We experienced an international Ursuline spirit and a will to make this spirit live in every country, whatever the specific contexts. We shared very much with our friends from Quebec, but also with Sisters from India, with South Africans, Brazilians, Australians… We made contacts for future exchange and collaboration, including the 2015 Congress : the people from Quebec have already worked on the subject of this future congress. We will follow up… “ Manuel and Louis Marie.
