Angela Merici Center


AMC LOGOThe Angela Merici Center for Spirituality, a ministry of the Ursuline Sisters of Louisville, is an oasis for the heart, mind and spirit for those seeking to nurture their spiritual lives. Our mission is to provide opportunities for individuals and groups to grow in a contemplative love of God that results in an openness and eagerness to serve the needs of others.


Taizé Prayer: The hallmarks of this contemplative prayer are simple songs and chants, silence and scripture readings that create an open heart, mind and soul for God.  It is offered the second Monday of the month: September 12, October 10, November 14 and December 12) at 7pm in the Ursuline Motherhouse Chapel.(more)

 Is writing your vocation, hobby, connection to life?  Do you journal, write poetry or prose or both, blog, write memoirs, fiction or essays?  If you go a few days without writing do you feel out of sorts, discombobulated, just not right?  If you answered "yes" to any of these questions then this retreat is for you.  This is not a writing workshop, but an opportunity to write with others, while connecting with your deepest self and discovering practices that aid in clearing heart, mind and soul.  Bring your favorite pen(s) and notebook and join us for a day anchored in writing and connected to life.    (more)
