Lady in Blue Day Mass set for May 21

SAN ANGELO The 9th annual Sor María de Jesús de Ágreda/Lady in Blue celebration will be observed at 6:30 p.m. May 21, at the Christ the King Retreat Center in San Angelo. Bishop Michael J. Sis will celebrate Mass in the retreat center chapel.
Known as “The Lady in Blue,” Sor María de Jesús de Ágreda was a cloistered nun who lived in Ágreda, Spain in the 1600s. She is known for her evangelization of the Jumanos, a Native American tribe of West Texas and the American Southwest.
The arrival of Franciscan missionaries as a result of María’s outreach to the Jumanos secured San Angelo’s place in history as the site of the first missionary efforts in Texas.
