Our Foundress
Founder of the IBVM – Mary Ward

The Institute of the Blessed Virgin Mary was founded by Mary Ward, an English woman in the year 1609. She founded the Institute for the propagation and strengthening of the Faith, especially through the Education of girls. In 1909 Pope St. Pius X recognized her as the foundress of the Institute and forty-two years later, Pius XII did the great honour of naming her as “the outstanding pioneer of the lay apostolate among women”.In 2009, Pope Benedict XVI declared her “Venerable Mary Ward” the first stage towards publicly declaring her a Saint of the Catholic Church.

The Irish Branch of the Institute was founded by Frances Teresa Ball at Rathfarnham on November 4, 1822, and the Convent was named ‘Loreto House’.
