Description

Mother Olga of the Sacred Heart is the founder and mother servant of Daughters of Mary of Nazareth. She lived through four wars in the Middle East. In 1993, as a young lay woman, she started a lay movement called Love Your Neighbor. She invited young men and women from Christian and Muslim communities to be part of this community to serve the needs of the poor in a war-torn area. In 1995 she established the order of Marth Maryam Sisters- Missionaries of the Virgin Mary, the first order for Religious Sisters in the Assyrian Church of the East in 700 years. She has been involved in various pastoral ministries for college students and youth in parishes. She also served the prisoners, homeless, elderly, and handicapped of war for many years. The Minister of Public Health gave her the Humanitarian Award for her service to the poorest of the poor there. She has a BS in Biology and Hematology and an MA in Philosophy and Theology from a college that is affiliated with the Pontifical Urbaniana University in Rome. She also has a certificate in Theology of The Body and also received her masters degree in Pastoral Ministry from Boston College.
