Welcome to the Ursuline Franciscan Congregation

I am Sr Susheela. As an Ursuline Franciscan I am moved to sing God's wonders in the life of this Congregation. We grew through hard ways. In every event the Lord's hand was always there. We join our friends today and sing songs of praise of the Lord forever. Our motto ! FOR THE LOVE OF GOD. Called and consecrated we are to manifest His love to men, women and children of our times. St Angela Founder of Ursulines and St Francis of Assisi are our Patrons. Angela's loveableness and Franciscan simplicity is our Identity. Following their spirit, we strive to meet the apostolic needs of our times through the Pastoral, Educational, Medical and Social apostolates.

Our Founder

Fr Urban Stein was born in Cologne on the Rhine, called German Rome on August 21, 1845, of John Stein and Anna Elizabeth Durst. Right in his early years his pious parents left an indelible impression on him of their own simple piety and profound faith. At the devotional level his Christian life was built on a double foundation: a tender love for the Blessed Virgin and a singularly personal love for the Saviour in the Eucharist. The boy Urban did his early studies at the Gymnasium of St Marcellus, formerly a Jesuit high School and at the age of 17 decided to join the Society of Jesus. On September 30, 1862 he joined the novitiate on the Friedrichsburg near Munster, Westphalia. His affability and refinement endeared him to all. Those who knew him well could also find in him a singleness of purpose, an unquestioning submission of himself to the demands of obedience and a burning zeal for the 'salvation of souls'. He pronounced his first vows on October 10, 1864 which was followed by further studies.
