The God of this City Tour is a collaborative effort between the Office for the New Evangelization of Youth and Young Adults (ONE) in the Archdiocese of Boston and LIFT Ministries. Each night will feature a time of praise & worship led by Jon Niven followed by a speaker sharing on an Advent related theme. The nights will each culminate with a time of Eucharistic Adoration featuring moments of silence and some music followed by more praise & worship. The Sacrament of Reconciliation will be available throughout each night as well. The tour is FREE to attend and open to ALL AGES. Come join us for a powerful night of prayer where we will encounter the living God in His Word and in the Eucharist!
Mother Olga Yaqob was born and raised in Iraq. When she was 13 years old, a war between her native Iraq and Iran began. It was the horrific conditions of that war that she witnessed, that shaped her decision to become a nun. With her great love and devotion to Jesus, Mother Olga joined the order of The Missionaries of the Virgin Mary. Sometime after becoming a nun in 1995, Yaqob received permission from the Assyrian Catholic Church to start her own order in Baghdad, where she was already leading a service-oriented religious outreach called Love Thy Neighbor. She is known as the "The Mother Teresa of Baghdad".
Coming to the United States in 2001, she studied at Boston University and finished her Masters degree in Ministry and Spirituality at Boston College. After that she served as Chaplain for Boston University's Catholic Center for several years. In 2010, at the invitation of Cardinal Sean O'Malley, she started a new religious order within the Archdiocese of Boston called the Daughters of Mary, Our Lady of Nazareth.
