An event every year that begins at 12:00 am on day 1 of June, repeating indefinitely
Born at Desenzano on Lake Garda in North Italy, St. Angela Merici received a solid Christian education whose value she appreciated to the full. She was fond of saying that the disorders of society are the result of disorder in the family, and that there are too few Christian mothers. To remedy this evil she founded the Ursuline Congregation to undertake the Christian education of girls. St. Angela died at Brescia on January 24, 1540.
