Special Events 2020-2021
As we continue to carefully monitor global and local health developments related to COVID-19 (coronavirus), our Catholic foundation and Ursuline commitment to care for the whole person — we are called to be especially vigilant in preventing the spread of coronavirus. The Ursuline community has a human responsibility to model social distancing best practices. The highly contagious character of the virus and the danger it can pose to vulnerable populations demand that we take all possible precautions.
We have made several adjustments related to our events schedule, and are working on possible reimaginings of several of our popular events.
We hope to update this webpage with event information as it becomes available/adjusted. Right now we are doing everything we can to reschedule or create similar experiences as soon as we are able to host them. Thank you for your flexibility and understanding as we continue to plan creative solutions for favorites where we can. We look forward to engaging with you virtually in the months ahead and working together.
