Sisters of St. Joseph of Cluny Celebrate Their Congregational Feast Day

Anne-Marie Javouhey was born in France on November 11, 1779. In 1807, she founded the Sisters of St. Joseph of Cluny who dedicated themselves to the care of the sick and to teaching. She wrote, "...There is so much resourcefulness in children. It is on them that I count if God wishes to use us for such a great apostolate..." Called to minister to the colonies, Anne_Marie devoted herself to the emancipation of the slaves. She died July 15, 1851


O God, we thank you for the life of Blessed Anne-Marie Javouhey and for the apostolic work continues by her followers, the Sisters of St. Joseph of Cluny. May they be faithful to her spirit in their service to the young, the poor, the sick, and the mentally afflicted. We ask this in the name of Jesus whose gospel she so faithfully followed. Amen.
