Venerable Foundress

On June 28, 2012, good news came to spread a brilliant light on the tomb of our beloved Foundress: Pope Benedict XIV signed the Decree officially acknowledging the heroicity of virtues of Marie Fitzbach, and thereby declared her Venerable.

This was an acknowledgement of the HEROIC VIRTUES of “Marie-Josèphe du Sacré Cœur (Marie-Josèphe Fitzbach),” a Canadian widow and Foundress of the Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary (1806-1885).
