The Saint of Monroe?
Sacred Heart Parish and the town of Monroe have been blessed with a rare, historical, and grace filled distinction. On April 16, 2013, Cardinal Dolan officially opened the cause for the beatification and canonization of Mother Mary Teresa Tallon, the foundress of the Parish Visitors of Mary Immaculate of Monroe, New York. She is now recognized by the title, Servant of God. It is our hope and prayer if it be God’s will, that she be given the title of Blessed and Saint. The timeliness of this occasion coincides with the Church’s focus on “the new evangelization,” the very mission that Mother Mary Teresa Tallon embraced as the charism of the community of sisters that she founded. A copy of the edict signed by Cardinal Dolan can also viewed by clicking on the image to the left.
