...Let us open eyes of Evangelical charity....

Venerable Samuel Mazzuchelli, O.P.

Venerable Father Samuel Mazzuchelli

The missionary Dominican friar came to the US from Italy in 1828 at 22 years old, and went on to build over 20 churches, preach truth and minister the Sacraments to Indians and settlers on the frontier in northern Michigan, Wisconsin, and northern Iowa and Illinois, serve as Chaplain to the first Wisconsin Territorial Legislature, and found a community of Dominican teaching sisters. Pope John Paul II declared Father Mazzuchelli’s heroic virtue in 1993, giving him the title Venerable. Get to know the fascinating Father Mazzuchelli and what he can teach us for the New Evangelization. We’ve published a handsome new edition of his Memoirs and it’s only $7.46 on Amazon.

The Sinsinawa Dominican Sisters

These sisters have a beautiful past history of service to the Church and society. The Report on the Sinsinawa Dominicans Today is a new and in depth look at what we see them saying and doing in recent years. We love sisters, we know Father Mazzuchelli their founder loves them with a warm affection, and we’re concerned that many of them seem to feel estranged from “the institutional Church,” to use their phrase, and that many now hold some beliefs quite at odds with the Catholic faith.
