German-American Franciscan Sister, missionary and saint
Saint Marianne Cope, O.S.F. , also known as the Saint Marianne of Molokaʻi, was an American who was a member of the Sisters of Saint Francis of Syracuse, New York. Known for her charitable works and virtuous deeds, she spent many years caring for the lepers on the island of Molokaʻi in Hawaiʻi. Despite direct contact with the patients over many years, Cope was not afflicted by the disease, considered by some faithful to be miraculous.
