Sr. Adele Brennan is the new Prioress of the Ursuline Sisters of Dallas community, succeeding Sr. Lois Castillon in that role.
Sr. Adele is currently executive assistant to the Central Province in St. Louis. As a non-resident Prioress, she will travel to Dallas regularly for meetings at Ursuline. Sr. Lois will continue as Ursuline's Director of Mission and Heritage.
Sr. Adele visited Ursuline this week for the first board meetings of the school year. She will serve as ex-officio member of the Ursuline Academy Board of Trustees and the Ursuline Foundation Board. She was Ursuline's assistant principal from 1987-1992.
"I'm thrilled to be back in Dallas," said Sr. Adele, who attended Ursuline Academy Galveston and studied Administration at the University of Notre Dame. "It will be a good experience to work with the sisters in this community. I've known many of them for years, some even since childhood."
As Prioress, Sr. Adele will be coordinator of the Ursuline Sisters of Dallas for their health, well-being, and monthly gatherings. The Prioress also brings the Sisters together as needed for meetings relating to Province reports and official business, and serves as liaison between the local level and Provincial leadership of the Ursulines of the Central Province.
