Ursula Herrera, OSB

Ursula Herrera, OSB, is a Benedictine Sister of Boerne, TX. She earned her nursing degree from the University of Texas and worked at her community's hospital in San Antonio. When the community sold their hospital, she continued nursing at another hospital until responding to the need for medical personnel in Eagle Pass, on the U.S. border with Mexico, in 1996. In Eagle Pass, Sister Ursula quickly became aware of great need in Piedras Negras, across the Rio Grande, and began offering support to communities there. When she retired from nursing in 2018 her full-time ministry became responding to the needs of migrants and refugees, the poor, especially women, children and the disabled, and the many volunteers and donors who have become part of her ministry network.
