The Church proclaimed Mary Ward “Venerable” in 2009. She was recognised as a woman of “undoubted heroic virtue” four centuries after her institute was suppressed and she was imprisoned. Mary Ward’s sisters who work in over 40 countries worldwide rejoiced in the public recognition of this prophetic woman.
As Mary Ward was born on a 23rd (23 Januaray 1585), all those who follow in her footsteps pray especially for her cause on every 23rd of each month. Join us in prayer!.
