Sister Mary Dostal, OSU
Diocese of Great Falls-Billings, Montana

Shining the Light of Christ’s Love on a Suffering Population

Born to a farming family in Montana, Sister Mary Dostal, OSU, didn’t realize the depth of poverty or missionary possibilities in her own state. But after her first ministry assignment teaching on the Flathead Indian Reservation, she fell in love with the Native American people and became a strong advocate for their needs. Along with her counterpart, Sister Pat Funderhide, Sister Dostal founded Angela’s Piazza in Billings to empower native women who have been emotionally and physically abused. Support groups, 12-step programs and classes build confidence in the women as they learn new skills. By coupling these services along with days of prayer and faith formation, Sister Dostal has created a place of true healing and renewal.
