Ursuline sisters meet with parents about proposed apartments at Motherhouse


Work is under way on moderate-income senior apartments at the Ursuline Center on Shields Road.

The Ursuline Sisters conducted a meeting Thursday with parents whose children attend the kindergarten or preschool at the center to clear up myths and misconceptions about the project.

The $1.2 million project will include 12 apartments in the west wing of the Ursuline Sisters of Youngstown Motherhouse complex, said Sister Nancy Dawson, general superior.

It’s the third phase of a project at the facility. The first $1.7 million phase was reconfiguring and updating the east wing of the Motherhouse for the nuns who live there. The second phase, which cost about $200,000 and is almost done, relocated Motherhouse business offices.

“We have 35 sisters that live in the house,” Sister Nancy said. “We would never jeopardize in any way their security or your children’s safety.”
