Recalling our Foundress

Jeanne-Marie Chavoin Foundress of the Marist Sisters

Marist Sisters throughout the world are today recalling with deep gratitude the life of their foundress Jeanne-Marie Chavoin on the anniversary of her death, 30th June 1858. Her love of God, her simplicity, her generosity and her outreach to those in need inspires us to follow her example of following Christ as Mary did.

“Each one of the children
of her Society
must apply herself
to live the life
of this divine Mother
which is none other
than the life of Jesus Christ.”
(CMJ 18.1)
