Toronto Catholic District School Board

Mary Ward​ Beatification


At a pep rally for the 2016 Walk-A-Thon, Ms. DeNisco announced the exciting news that Mary Ward, foundress of the Loretto Sisters, had been declared VENERABLE! She called on the student body to pray to St. Theresa of Calcutta, herself a former Loretto Sister,  for Mary's sainthood. "PLEASE, PLEASE make this intention part of your daily prayers. St.Theresa of Calcutta, pray WITH US for a SAINT Mary Ward!"

​Mary Ward, foundress of the Loretto Sisters earned a golden reputation because she envisioned education FOR GIRLS - something unheard of in her day! Because of her fierce determination, bravery, courage and willingness to take risks, Mary's vision has come alive in 150 Loretto schools all over the world!

​We may not carry great torches which cast the brilliant light of day on the Church an​d on the world, but we shall carry little lanterns instead which light up...the hearts of the young, the poor and all people who are in need. - Mary Ward​​​​
