Mother Olga Yaqob

Mother Olga Yaqob was born and raised in Iraq, where she established a lay movement comprised of young men and women from Christian and Muslim communities to serve the needs of the poor. 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. Received into the Roman Catholic Church in 2005, Cardinal Séan Patrick O’Malley, entrusted to her the mission of establishing a new religious community of sisters in the Archdiocese of Boston, the Daughters of Mary of Nazareth, in 2011.
