Happy Birthday Mary Ward!
Today January 23rd is the birthday of our foundress, Mary Ward.
She was born in Mulwith, Yorkshire, England on this day in 1585 to Ursula and Marmaduke Ward.
This day marks the beginning of Mary Ward Week, celebrated in IBVM,CJ and Mary Ward communities worldwide. It concludes on January 30th, the anniversary of her death in 1645.
On her day may we be inspired by Mary Ward, in this Loreto year of Sincerity, to be such as we appear and appear such as we are throughout the new school year ahead.
