Mother Mary Lange O.S.P. Prayer Service and Pilgrimage
February 28 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
“Our sole will is to do the will of God”
Servant of God Mother Mary Lange O.S.P
On Sunday February 28 at 2 PM, our St. Ignatius Justice and Peace Committee in partnership with the Racial Justice Circle and greater community will present an internet Zoom Prayer Service and Pilgrimage on Mother Mary Lange and the Oblate Sisters of Providence. Mother Mary Lange founded the Oblate Sisters of Providence on July 2, 1829. It was the first order of the Sisters of African American descent in the United States. Mother Lange revealed consecrated lives to people of African descent as St. Paul revealed Jesus Christ to the Gentiles.
“…Mother Lange’s love for all enabled her to see Christ in each person and the pain of prejudice and racial hatred never blurred that vision.”
Her cause for Canonization is in Rome. A portrait of Mother Mary Lange hangs on the altar of St. Ignatius and many other Catholic Church Communities. During these troubled times we will pray to God through the intercession of Mother Mary Lange for healing. It is a Lenten opportunity to learn of Mother Mary Lange and the Oblate Sisters of Providence This Zoom service will be filled with diverse voice of prayers, witness, song, praise, reflections and historical context.
Come join us in prayer and supplication as we pray for the healing of ourselves, our families, our communities, our country, and our world.
