New Book Available by Sister Margaret Gannon, IHM

This study of the life of Mother Theresa Maxis Duchemin, is a revision of one that was written in 1978. At the time the notion of the Pilgrim Church was new to us all. That led to a recognition that Theresa Maxis Duchemin, one of the two founders of the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, could be understood as the embodiment of the pilgrim in search of God and God’s Will for her.

In response to several requests for me to revise the study, I have set out to do so. In the intervening years several helpful studies have been published which add important information and insights into Theresa’s life and experiences. These works supplement and enhance the earlier research pursued by previous writers who, in the style of their own times, training and perspectives provided basic information about Theresa. These include Grace H. Sherwood, Immaculata Gillespie, IHM, Marie Alma Ryan, IHM, and Rosalita Kelly, IHM. It is a pleasure to acknowledge the contribution of all these to our understanding of Theresa.
