Saint Peter Canisius was born in 1521 and died in 1597. He was a Jesuit priest and was declared a Doctor of the Church and is known as the second Apostle of Germany. He and Father Lejay were commissioned to write a Catechism and due to the death of Father Lejay, St. Peter Canisius finished writing the Catechism in 1555. A biography is available at Saints and Angels Online.


Today is the feast day of our Sister, Sister M. Canisia, OSF. Please join us in praying for her today.
