Anneâ€™s motto was "For me to live is Christ, to die is gain". The Foundress placed her Congregation of St. Ursula under the special protection of Mary, Virgin and Mother. The central role of Mary, the Mother of God in the Society is evident as seen in the Emblem. The letters represent MARIA. The Blessed Virgin Mary is the Patroness of our congregation and is our strength and guide on our way to Jesus.
