On April 16th, 2016, there was a strong earthquake in Manabí (Ecuador), where there is a community of Servant Sisters of the Home of the Mother. The house collapsed completely, causing the death of a professed sister, Sr. Clare Crockett and five young women who were in their first steps of formation as Servant Sisters: Jazmina, Mayra, Maria Augusta, Valeria and Catalina.

She had a great love for Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother. Whenever something was hard for her, all you had to say was, “Won’t you do it for Our Lady?” To which she would respond without fail, “Yes, for Her I’ll do anything.”



Maria Augusta was born July 22, 1992 in Chone, in the Province of Manabi, Ecuador. She entered as a candidate of the Servant Sisters of the Home of the Mother on October 20, 2014 in the chapel of our house in Playa Prieta.
