Mary Virginia Merrick, Servant of God

Mary Virginia Merrick’s vision continues to inspire Christ Child Society members today to do more for more children.  And her example is a powerful legacy that inspires many others to lives of service and faith as well. In witness of this, in 2011, Cardinal Wuerl of the Washington Archdiocese officially opened the cause for Mary Virginia Merrick’s canonization as a saint in the Roman Catholic Church, which continues in the Archdiocesan Phase.
