Jeanne Jugan is the foundress and first Little Sister of the Poor. She was beatified by Pope John Paul II on October 3, 1982 and canonized by Pope Benedict XVI on October 11, 2009.
“Love God very much, so that later on… near the Aged,
you will care for them well, because it is Jesus himself
whom you care for in them.” Jeanne Jugan
As Little Sisters of the Poor, we strive to live out these words of our Mother Foundress in our daily lives. In everything we do and more particularly when we care for the Residents, and accompany them with love and respect until their natural death. Our Staff, our Associates and our Voluntary workers are imbued with the spirit of Saint Jeanne Jugan.
Together with the Little Sisters and the Families of the Residents, we aim to do all we can to meet all the daily needs of the Residents and to be very attentive to their spiritual welfare until the end of life. We are respectful of the liberty and dignity of each person, as also of each one’s beliefs. At all times, we give witness to respect for life.
