Book features life of Mercedarian sisters’ founder


The book of three Saipan authors—Kathleen H. Arriola, Martha C. Camacho and Sr. MaryAnn Hartmann, MMB—titled To Know and Make Known: One woman’s amazing faith journey from the cloister to the ‘ends of the earth’, will be officially launched and be made available this Wednesday, March 21 at 5:30pm at the Joeten-Daidai Social Hall in Chalan Kanoa.

Bishop Ryan P. Jimenez of the Diocese of Chalan Kanoa will present the book.

The book chronicles the life and legacy of Margarita Maria Maturana, who founded the Mercedarian Missionaries of Berriz (Maturana House of Prayer, Navy Hill).

The history of “the Sisters’” presence on Saipan over the past 90 years, which was just celebrated on March 4, is included, as well as 10 translations of the Novena for the Sick Through the Intercession of Blessed Margarita.

That evening, the book will be available for a suggested contribution of $15, which covers printing and shipping costs. After that night, copies of the book can be obtained from the nuns at Maturana. (PR)
