Sr. Mary Ann Henagan was born in Cleveland, Ohio and raised as a Baptist. From her early teen years she felt the draw of God’s grace to join the Catholic Church and to do something special with her life. This call, unknown to Mary Ann at the time, was always supported by her mother’s prayers. Through the guidance of the Holy Spirit and that of her pastor she entered the Missionary Servants of the Most Blessed Trinity. Sr. Mary Ann earned a nursing degree and later an MA in Spiritual Direction. This training and her gentle spirit has enabled her to bring the compassionate Christ to all she meets throughout her service at many of our missions.
In 1995, Sr. Mary Ann joined the National Black Sister Conference. She has served on their Board of Directors and worked on retreats for young women of color, providing them opportunities for a deeper understanding of their Catholic faith. In 2010 the National Black Sisters Conference recognized her many years of ministry to the Black Community as well as her years of service to the Black Sisters Conference by presenting her with their Harriet Tubman Award.
