Canonization Date Announced for Blessed Anne Marie Rivier

The University is honored to announce that Pope Francis will canonize our namesake, Blessed Anne Marie Rivier, on May 15, 2022, at St. Peter's Basilica in Rome.

We are honored to share news that the Congregation for the Causes of Saints has officially announced May 15, 2022 as the date of the canonization of Blessed Anne Marie Rivier.

Pope Francis will canonize our University namesake together with three other Blesseds during a Canonization Mass in St. Peter’s Basilica.

The Rivier community rejoices with the Sisters of the Presentation of Mary that their foundress will be recognized for her holiness of life and apostolic zeal especially among the poor and vulnerable.

We are delighted to celebrate this milestone in a year that anticipates Rivier’s 90th anniversary. These days will offer the opportunity for grateful reflection on our past and envision a future full of promise.

University celebrations honoring our namesake and our anniversary year are being planned and details will be shared with the Rivier community as they unfold.
