She established the Sisters of the Divine Savior – also referred to as the Salvatorian Sisters – with the assistance of the priest Francis Mary of the Cross Jordan, founder of the Salvatorians. She later assumed the name of "Maria of the Apostles" following her solemn profession as a nun. She was beatified on 13 October 1968 after Pope Paul VI recognized two miracles attributed to her intercession. Her feast day is celebrated on 5 September.
