Recalling the Life of a Foundress


Be all very united….
…In order to bear all things well
walk always in God’s presence.
Unite all your actions
to those of Our Lord,
ask him often to come to your aid
and to bless you.
(CMJ 65:1-2)

Jeanne-Marie Chavoin, Foundress of the Marist Sisters, was a woman who lived simply and, like Mary, was attentive to the needs of others. As we recall the anniversary of her death on 30th June we pray¬†that like her we might always “try to live in a great spirit of faith which will lead us to see God in everything” (CMJ 90.3).
