Who is Saint Mother Theodore Guerin?

Although Saint Mother Theodore Guerin lived in the 1800s, she continues to be a woman who inspires people today with her faith, love, and courage. She is a mentor for people today because she was a business woman, a pharmacist, an educator, a leader and a strong, faith-filled woman.

After an extraordinary journey from France , Mother Theodore arrived in the dense forest of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods in 1840 where she started an academy and novitiate for the Sisters of Providence. After many testimonies and a beautification process, she was canonized and made a saint in the Roman Catholic Church in October 2006.
