St. Ursula - Banner BAN990
Artwork by the Benedictine Sisters of Turvey Abbey
Ursula (and female companions), Martyr.
Feastday (pre-1969 calendar revision)
Little factual information is known of
this female martyr. She was probably a Romano- British saint of noble birth
who, together with a number of other women in her entourage, was massacred in,
or on the way to, Cologne. A basilica in her honour was re-built in
Cologne around the 4th Century.
Ursula became representative of a leader
of women and in 1535 St. Angela Merici founded the Order of the Ursulines in
her honour, a community devoted to the education of young girls. Ursula is
known as the patron saint of students.
Because of the scarcity of true facts
about her when the calendar was revised in 1969 her feast was omitted.
