Ursuline Sisters of Great Falls - Images of America
By Sister Francis Xavier Porter O.S.U. and Kristi D. Scott. Softcover, 128 pages.
Listed in the National Register of Historic Places, the richly patterned six-story brick and terra-cotta Ursuline Academy has graced the city of Great Falls for over a century. A grand marble entryway and a beautiful two-story chapel inside the building remind us of post-frontier educational opportunities provided by the Ursuline Sisters. The former academy was renamed Ursuline Centre in the 1970s and continues to be a quintessential symbol of education and community. Today, the building serves as a meeting and retreat center and features exhibit rooms, a museum, an auditorium, and a gymnasium.
Images of America: Ursuline Sisters of Great Falls draws on photographs and research from Ursuline Archives. It explores a continuing voyage in central Montana, where the Ursuline Sisters have impacted many lives.
