St Jeanne Jugan
I have been asked to write a few words about the great foundress of the Little Sisters of the Poor who I greatly admire and try to follow her footsteps.
Early years of Jeanne Jugan:
Jeanne Jugan was a sailor’s daughter born on the 25th October 1792 in a humble thatched cottage overlooking the bay of Cancale in Brittany. She was baptised that same day in the parish church and registered under the name of Jeanne, daughter of Joseph Joucan and Marie Horel, his wife.
