About Mother Angelica
Mother Mary Angelica of the Annunciation was a Poor Clare nun whose profound trust in Divine Providence led her to launch EWTN in 1981, with the mission of spreading the splendor of Christ and His Church to the world. She endured a rough childhood in Canton, Ohio, marked by poverty, her parents’ divorce, her mother’s mental health issues, and physical ailments that she endured throughout her life. She became a fully professed religious in 1953, at the Poor Clare monastery in Canton, before founding Our Lady of the Angels Monastery in Irondale, Alabama, a short eight years later. Always quick with a quip and prepared with a prayer, Mother Angelica’s wit and words have inspired the hearts of people of all ages and all faiths. A pioneer of Catholic communications, she died on Easter Sunday, March 27, 2016.
About Father Joseph
Fr. Joseph Mary Wolfe knew Mother Angelica well, discovering his vocation to the priesthood while working for her at EWTN. He had been working as an engineer for General Electric Medical Systems when he first saw Mother Angelica on EWTN. The show kept dropping on and off the air, and she said, “As you can see, we need an engineer.” He answered that need and came to work as engineer for EWTN in 1985. On May 2, 1987, he entered the Franciscan Missionaries of the Eternal Word, becoming one of its founding members. He continued working as an engineer as a brother before entering seminary. He was ordained to the priesthood on June 11, 1993, and served as the Community Servant for seven years. Fr. Joseph currently serves as the Dean of the Chapel for EWTN, as well as hosts a variety of EWTN programs, including An EWTN Holy Land Experience and The Church Universal.
