Association Jeanne Jugan

We are an association of Catholic lay men and women whose mission is to imbue the world with the spirit of St. Jeanne Jugan and her mission of hospitality in our daily milieu. We work in close collaboration with the Little Sisters, for we wish to be the extension of their hands and their hearts!

New members of the Association undergo a year of spiritual preparation and make their promise on the feast of St. Joseph the Worker, together with the other members of the Association who renew their annual promise the same day.

The Association members meet several times throughout the year in order to continue deepening their understanding of the spirit of St. Jeanne Jugan.

Some of the AJJ activities at Jeanne Jugan Residence include:

  • Driving Residents for outings and appointments
  • Helping our maintenance department with daily tasks such as carpentry, painting and maintenance of our grounds
  • Assisting with the meal service of the Residents
  • Preparing homemade treats for the Residents
  • Organizing weekly bingo and card games
  • Helping the Activity Department with celebrations for feast days, holidays and other special events
  • Assisting with annual fundraising activities such as the Annual Fundraising Dinner, Christmas Bazaar and rummage sales
  • Animating spiritual meetings and encounters with the Residents during Advent and Lent
  • Serving as lectors and Eucharistic ministers at Mass
  • Spending quality time with Residents through friendly visits
