Catholic Community

Ursuline Academy is a Catholic school rooted in the teachings of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We are a faith-filled community that embraces and lives the Gospel on and off campus. Both Catholics and non-Catholics attend and teach at Ursuline, and each individual is able to take advantage of an environment that allows religious education to be a valued part of daily life. 


Worshipping together is essential to the nature of our school community. Under the direction of our faculty, students are invited to help plan and prepare our religious services. All students and faculty participate in the celebration of the liturgy, prayer services, and other religious events. Special attention is given to ensure all students, regardless of their age, have an opportunity to celebrate their faith in a particularly meaningful way.   

Our entire Ursuline community gathers to celebrate special occasions, including:

Opening School Liturgy
The Feast of St. Angela
Ash Wednesday
Holy Days of Obligation

Our Early Childhood and Lower School prepares and celebrates:  

The Feast of St. Francis
Advent Prayer Service

Thanksgiving Liturgy
Advent Wreath Lighting Prayer Services
Marian Liturgy

In addition to annually scheduled masses, the Sacrament of Reconciliation is offered during Spirituality Days throughout the year.

As members of the Ursuline Community, parents are always welcome to participate in all of our liturgies and prayer services.
