Biographical Note:
Sister Mary Wilhelmina Lancaster, OSB, founded the Benedictine of Mary, Queen of Apostles, in 1995 at the age of seventy. Four years after her death, in May 2023, the sisters were preparing for the reinternment of the remains of their beloved foundress after the completion of a St. Joseph Shrine. Upon seeing Sister Wilhelmina’s remains, they discovered something incredible, something miraculous–her body appeared to be incorrupt!

In The Life of Sister Mary Wilhelmina, you will become acquainted with this most humble sister, who, after fifty years of religious life, was called to establish the Benedictines of Mary, Queen of Apostles, to remain faithful to the traditional religious life and the Latin Mass. This biography includes stories of her life, her experience as a Black Catholic during racial tensions, the founding of a community, and her original poetry. Her entire life is a testament to fidelity, devotion, and surrender to God’s will.
