Feast of the Sacred Heart

Posted 5/20/2018

During the month of June the Ursuline Community and friends celebrate the feast of the Sacred Heart.

June 8, 2018 

The Ursuline Convent was incorporated June 27, 1873 at the time Mother Alphonsus McCart was Superior. She came from the Cleveland Ursulines and was superior from 1861 – 1874 and died at the age of 43.

Why the “Ursulines of the Sacred Heart?” Could it be that the inorporation datce was near the feast of the Sacred Heart? Or a traditional devotion of the Ursulines in France? Or a devotion of Mother Alphonsus?

Each year on the feast of the Sacred Heart, the Ursuline Sisters of Toledo dedicate themselves to the Sacred Heart by reciting an Act of Consecration to the Sacred Heart. There are a variety of prayers and the same one is not always used but the intention is always the same. Happy Feast Day!
