“Blessed Miriam Teresa: Her Life, Spirituality and Miracles”
Sanctity in New Jersey? One of New Jersey’s own was recently beatified by Pope Francis. Her life and message stressed the indwelling of the Holy Trinity in each person and the universal call to holiness. Teresa Demjanovich was born in Bayonne, New Jersey, in 1901. After attending Bayonne public schools,
Teresa entered the College of Saint Elizabeth in Convent Station, New Jersey and graduated in 1923.
In 1925, she entered the Sisters of Charity at Convent Station. After profession of vows as a Sister of Charity, Teresa died in Saint Elizabeth Hospital, New Jersey, in 1927. She was 26 years of age. Because of her saintly life, her spiritual writings and the favors received through her intercession with God, the Sisters of Charity petitioned Rome for permission to open her Cause for Beatification and Canonization. Miriam Teresa was beatified on October 4th, 2014, in Sacred Heart Basilica, Newark, NJ.
This day will offer the opportunity to learn about Sister Miriam Teresa’s life and spirituality. We will be invited to grow in our own spiritual journey through opening ourselves more deeply to our baptismal call to holiness, and to dwell within the heart of the Trinity.
