The Charism of St. Ursula School

The Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur were founded by St. Julie. In the sixty plus years that the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur have had at Saint Ursula School, the charism of St. Julie has continued to grow. When speaking of our relationship with God, she said, “as a sunflower follows the sun, so should we always turn to our good God.” Today visitors to St. Ursula School will see many signs of sunflowers and they will hear God is good, all the time!
