About the Ursuline Sisters of Tildonk

The Ursuline Sisters and Associates of Tildonk strive to make God known and loved. We make a difference in society through the witness of our life profoundly rooted in God; a life of simplicity, harmony, mutuality and hospitality. Ursulines worldwide are committed to education, justice, peace, and the integrity of creation, as our ministries continue to meet the changing needs of God’s people.

In the U.S. Province most of our Sisters are above the traditional retirement age. A self-supporting religious community with little financial support from the Catholic Church, we are preparing to face the financial challenges of an uncertain future. With a deep and abiding faith in God, we remain confident that as we stay true to our mission, our next chapter will unfold with joy and hope.
