Marguerite Bays

Local nameMaison de la Bienheureuse Marguerite Bays
LocationLa Pierraz, Switzerland

Blessed Marguerite Bays was a Swiss Roman Catholic member of the Secular Franciscan Order. She worked as a seamstress and also served as a catechist. She lived a simple life as a Franciscan and adapted the tenets of the order's charism into her own life and social apostolate. This became even greater after she was cured of bowel cancer on 8 December 1854 and she took this as a sign of greater service to both God and neighbor.After her death in 1879, Pope John Paul II beatified her in 1995 after the recognition of a miracle attributed to her intercession. One final miracle needed for her to be canonized received approval from Pope Francis at the beginning of 2019 thus allowing for her to be canonized. On 1 July 2019, it was announced that she will be canonized with four others on 13 October 2019.
