A Sister of St. Francis, Marianne was canonized Oct. 21, 2012. She is the first Franciscan woman from North America to be canonized, and only the 11th American saint. A woman of great valor, this beloved mother of outcasts, spent her early years in central New York where she served as a leader in the field of health care, education and of her own congregation. Responding to a call to care for the poor sick on the then Sandwich Islands, she devoted 35 years to caring for those afflicted with Hansen’s disease on Kalaupapa, Molokai, Hawaii.
the shrine and museum offers official merchandise from Mother Marianne’s congregation, the Sisters of St. Francis of the Neumann Communities including: medals, prayer cards, books, statues, mugs, note cards, collectibles and more. Through your purchase, you will not only be celebrating the legacy of Mother Marianne, but you’ll be supporting the Sisters of St. Francis of the Neumann Communities who continue her mission in the world today.
