The first International Mary Ward Week for teachers and students run by the laity took place in York in August. The moving spirits behind it were Frau Annette Haseneder and Lotte Webb. Participants came from CJ and IBVM corners of Mary Ward’s family notably from Germany, Brazil, South Africa and England. As well as seeing the places connected with Mary Ward, there was a lot of prayer, fun, and creative work.

In his recent visit to England Pope Benedict XVI made special mention of Mary Ward when he said: “Looking around me today, I see many apostolic religious whose charism includes the education of the young. This gives me an opportunity to give thanks to God for the life and work of the Venerable Mary Ward, a native of this land whose pioneering vision of apostolic religious life for women has borne so much fruit. I myself as a young boy was taught by the “English Ladies” and I owe them a deep debt of gratitude.”
