Another witness in the 'cloud'.

There is one more black witness to add to "The black community's cloud of witnesses," by Diana Hayes (NCR, Feb. 3): Mother Theresa Maxis. She left the Oblate Sisters of Providence to go to Monroe, Mich., at the request of Redemptorist Fr. Louis Gillet to found the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. These sisters were founded to teach the children of the French and Indians who lived along the Raisin River.

This foundation again spread into two more branches of the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary in Philadelphia and Scranton, Pa. From the Michigan foundation, God's word of life has been spread back to Africa and South America as well as throughout United States.

No one can count the number of witnesses to God's words of life that have been spread across the globe by these women but God himself.
