Given to God
Sister Marta Wiecka was born on 12 January 1874 in Nowy Wiec, Poland, into a large and deeply Christian family. At the age of seven, Marta began to attend school. She had a positive influence on her classmates by her words and especially by the example of her life. Her cousin Lucja writes: “During the time we were studying at school in our home village, Marta had many friends, thanks to her serenity and cheerfulness. At the age of fifteen, Marta’s future became clear in her heart: she felt called by God and wrote to Father Dabrowski, her Spiritual Director, and then to the Daughters of Charity in Chelmno, to ask to be admitted to the Company.
