Wooden statue of Saint Mother Marianne Cope that was temporarily housed at the Cathedral of Our Lady of Peace. Same Cathedral where Father Damien was ordained.
Following the canonization, Honolulu celebrated its newest saint with a special mass at the Cathedral, procession of the relic to the only royal palace in the United States, Iolani Palace.
The reliquary of Saint Mother Marianne Cope is on the opposite side of the Saint Damien reliquary in front of the adoration chapel in the Cathedral. It is taken out for special occasions for veneration.
Saint Mother Marianne Cope,
you left your homeland, and you left your adopted home to care for those unloved, sick and forgotten in the Hawaiian islands.
Please intercede for those who continue to be marginalized by society. Help us to love them as you loved the people on Kalaupapa. We ask this to Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen
