As Little Sisters of the Poor we care for the elderly poor in the spirit of humble service we have received from our foundress, Saint Jeanne Jugan. We welcome the elderly as we would Jesus Christ himself and serve them with love and respect until God calls them home.
“How blessed I am to be a Little Sister of the Poor! From the very first time I met the Little Sisters, which was when I was a pre-teen, the name of our Congregation has always touched my heart and set me on the path God had chosen for my life. It defines who I am: a daughter of St. Jeanne Jugan, who was in fact just that…a little sister of God’s Poor. No matter how much I give of myself, I will never be able to give a fraction of what I receive each day, spent so closely with our dear Residents who inspire me and bring such joy to my life.”
