Recalling the Legacy of Jeanne-Marie Chavoin

Jeanne-Marie Chavoin Foundress of the Marist Sisters

Each year on 30th June, Marist Sisters throughout the world celebrate the anniversary of the death of their Foundress, Jeanne-Marie Chavoin.  This celebration provides an opportunity to reflect on her life and be inspired anew by her trust in God, her simplicity and her compassion for others. Shortly before her death Mother St Joseph, the name given to her at her profession, reminded her sisters:

“A Marist sister’s sole desire should be to resemble the little family at Nazareth – there she will find the perfect models of poverty, simplicity and love.”   (Recollections of Mother St Joseph, 108)
