At the conclusion of Catholic Schools Week, Mount Carmel School recognized 1991 AlumKnight, Professor Rose Cuison Villazor, as the 2016 Distinguished AlumKnight of the Year. This was the acceptance speech she filmed for airing at the 2016 Night with the Knights, the school’s annual AlumKnight fundraising banquet.
The Diocese of Chalan Kanoa Committee for the Canonization Cause of Blessed Margarita Maria Maturana would like to invite everyone to participate in this process.
You are kindly asked to consider writing a personal letter to the Pope. You would share with him, in your own words, how Mother Margarita, who sent her sisters—the Mercedarian Missionaries of Berriz here to Saipan and actually came here herself in 1928 and 1931, has personally impacted you, your family, our island. We sincerely desire her to be declared a Saint so that the whole universal Church would be able to share the gift of God she was and is-- a true inspiration for our world today.
The letter should be placed in a plain white envelope, sealed and addressed to Pope Francis-Vatican City and delivered to the MMB Sisters at Maturana-Navy Hill or to the Mt. Carmel Cathedral Office. If you prefer you can place it in another envelope and mail it to:
Mt. Carmel Cathedral
Cause for Canonization
P.O. Box 500745
Saipan, MP 96950
Anyone 18 years old or older can write a letter. Just think--how many times in your life will you have the opportunity to write to the Pope? The deadline for submission of the letters is the Sunday after Easter, April 23--the Feast of Divine Mercy.
Therefore, please consider taking a little time to cooperate with this letter-writing effort for the Cause and remember--sooner, is always better rather than later!
For all ages--please join in praying for the Canonization of Blessed Margarita. THANK YOU!
(Committee for the Canonization of Blessed Margarita Maria Maturana)
