HISTORY

Pro Labore Dei Comes to the United States

"Have you heard of Sister Stella-Maris?" Dr.(Mrs.) Veronica Onianwa asked us. "Sister who?" we replied. "Sister Stella-Maris, Star of the Sea, she is the Mother Teresa of Nigeria," explained Veronica. "She feeds destitute children and homeless people."

This conversation took place on December 12, 2000, outside Cleveland, Ohio, USA. We had traveled on a pilgrimage together with Veronica's brother, Father Patrick Isichei, to visit and pray at Maranatha Springs, a holy shrine of our Blessed Mother Mary. We had no idea that it was God's will that less than a year later, Father Patrick would arrange for Sister Stella-Maris to fly to Flint, Michigan,USA, where we would meet her in late October, 2001. At our first meeting, she greeted us with a big smile full of love and kindness. We would see that smile often as she continued to do God's work for the next six weeks in Madison, Wisconsin, Las Vegas, Nevada, Chicago, Illinois, and Bloomington, Indiana.

In Madison, Sr. Stella spoke to prayer groups, in churches and private residences about what Pro Labore Dei is and does. Many came to hear her message and, thanks to God, many experienced physical and spiritual healings. Sister established a Pro Labore Dei Support Group in Madison that meets on the first Tuesday of each month. We pray, sing, read scripture passages and meditate. We also discuss how we can help Pro Labore Dei in the future ..........

In Las Vegas, an active Pro Labore Dei Center and Support Group is in the process of being formed.

We, in the United States, thank God that he sent our Nigerian Sister here to continue the good work of Pro Labore Dei in our country. She has touched and opened our hearts to the needs of our destitute Nigerian brothers and sisters. We pray for and look forward to the future growth of Pro Labore Dei in the world and to Sister Stella-Maris's next visit to our country.
