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.
The Little Sisters of the Poor, in the spirit of the Church, offer the same welcome to the Aged of all religions. 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. For the Residents who share our beliefs, we do our best, to help them to draw closer to Christ. The numerous contacts which we have with our brothers and sisters of other Christian confessions gradually increase mutual esteem, thus preparing the way to unity. In the Homes we are attentive to the different spiritual needs of all the Residents and we support them to acquire the help they ask for and desire.
