A Holy Week Message from the President

4/13/2017
Dear Ursuline Family,

As we approach Easter, I hope this Lenten season has offered all of us a very special opportunity to grow in or relationship with God and to deepen our commitment to a way of life rooted in our baptism.

In our busy world, Lent provides us with the chance to reflect upon our patterns, to pray more deeply, experience sorrow for what we’ve done and failed to do, and to be generous to those in need. Lent is a wonderful season for reflection and a time when we rededicate ourselves to the Church as we prepare for Easter.

As we prepare for Easter and the culmination of the Lenten season, let us pray:

Lord Jesus, often enough, we’re burdened by our past,
by what we have done or failed to do.
We condemn and we judge, losing hope in others as well as in ourselves.
We walk in the dark.
Inspire us, like your Apostle, Paul, to forget what lies behind
and press on to what lies ahead, to pursue the goal, the glorious prize,
which, by your grace, you help us gain. AMEN.

Yours in Christ,
Gretchen Z. Kane
