The Ursulines of Toledo unfold the spirit and vision of St. Angela Merici in education, parish and hospital ministry, hospice and home healthcare, as well as in ministry to the incarcerated and in efforts to put an end to the death penalty and human trafficking. They work closely with the laity in a variety of expressions of the mind and heart of St. Angela. The Ursulines sponsor St. Ursula Academy, the leading Catholic college-preparatory school for young women in northwest Ohio. A Junior Academy, grades 7-8, was added in 2011. In the fall of 2012 grade 6 was added.
In 1985, the Ursuline Center was built on the grounds adjacent to St. Ursula Academy. This is the only facility built specifically for the use of the Sisters, first as a retirement home; later to become a certified Medicare/Medicaid facility. In 2009, through the collaborative efforts of the Ursulines, the Sisters of Notre Dame, and two local Franciscan communities of women, the Center was authorized to accept as residents members from any of the communities of women religious as well as both diocesan priests and priests belonging to religious orders.
In addition, the Ursuline Center has been granted permission to allow immediate family members and Ursuline Associates to be residents.
For almost twenty-five years, one sister of the Ursulines of Toledo has served the people of Lima, Peru, and some surrounding towns and villages in collaboration with an already established mission founded by the Ursulines of Louisville, Kentucky.
