Saint Marianne Cope (January 23, 1838 – August 9, 1918), born in Germany, was a Franciscan Sister who dedicated her life to serving those affected by leprosy in Hawaii. She responded to a call to care for the lepers on the island of Molokai, joining the mission established by St. Damien of Molokai. Saint Marianne worked tirelessly to improve living conditions, provide medical care, and offer spiritual comfort to the patients. She showed immense compassion and fearlessness in the face of the highly stigmatized disease. Marianne’s selfless service and dedication earned her the title “Mother Marianne of Molokai.” She was canonized in 2012 and is venerated as a model of courage, charity, and love for the marginalized. Saint Marianne Cope’s feast day commemorates her life and work as a beacon of hope and healing for the people of Molokai.
