am not afraid of any disease...
I am hungry for the work"
- Mother Marianne
In 1883, Saint Marianne and
a small group of Franciscan sisters arrived on Oahu,
Hawaii to care for the victims of Hansenís Disease
(formerly known as leprosy).
When many patients had been exiled from Oahu to Kalaupapa,
a remote peninsula on the island of Molokai, she followed
and established the Bishop Home for women. Saint Marianne
cared for Father Damien when he became ill with Hansenís
After his death in 1889, she handled the administration
of the Boys Home at Kalawao, which had been founded
by Saint Damien.
After 30 years of dedicated service, she died at her
beloved Kalaupapa in 1918 at the age of 80. Neither
she or any of her sisters ever contracted the disease.
The Saint Marianne of Molokai Painting
was created in full color by Molokai artist, Linda
Johnston after careful research and preliminary sketches.
