UPDATE ON THE BEATIFICATION OF BLESSED MIRIAM TERESA DEMJANOVICH, SC

October 4, 2014, is rapidly approaching. New Jersey will have its first woman to be proclaimed Blessed by the Catholic Church. Sister Miriam Teresa Demjanovich was born and raised in Bayonne, New Jersey. She was a member of the Sisters of Charity of Saint Elizabeth, a New Jersey based congregation of women religious. In her short life she showed deep reverence for God’s presence and action in her life. In response, she led what the Church has called a life of heroic virtue. Expressed in love of God and love of neighbor, her life is a model for others, especially today in our world torn apart by hatred, greed and lust for power.
