Who We Are
Faithful Companions of Jesus:
An International Congregation of Catholic Sisters founded by Marie Madeleine d’Houët in France in 1820
We wish to follow Jesus even to the cross and beyond…
Since He is the way that leads to Life
The essence of our lives is to be Companions of Jesus, sharing his mission.
God calls us to follow the Son in faithfulness, to stand at the foot of the cross with Mary and the holy women, there to be one with Jesus who thirsts for the coming of the kingdom.
We live an Ignatian spirituality and, as Faithful Companions of Jesus, our missionary spirit urges us to adapt our work to the changing needs of Society and to the culture in which we live.
