Mary Ward, the founder of our congregation, was born on a 23rd – 23 January 1585. So we have designated the 23rd of each month as a special day of remembrance for Mary Ward.
Sisters of her Institute, companions and friends of Mary Ward worldwide unite on these days across all geographical boundaries in memory of this special woman.
We use these days to immerse ourselves in her spirituality and to orient ourselves anew to her example. We are also united by the hope that the Church will recognise Mary Ward’s extraordinary life and raise her to the honour of the altars through beatification and canonisation.
