Novena in Memory of Marie Madeleine – Day 4

On 21st September, we celebrate the birthday of Marie Madeleine, who founded the FCJ Society in France almost 200 years ago. Join us as we make a novena in her memory prepared by our sisters in the Philippines.

Day 4: A Vow of Chastity

1 June 1817, Trinity Sunday.  Marie Madeleine sensed the call to make a vow of chastity which, up to this point, she had not at all desired….  But now she could record I readily and joyfully made the vow.  She did so dependent on her confessor’s approval…  It was to be renewed on a day that would be made clear to her.


This novena in memory of Marie Madeleine has been prepared by the sisters in the Philippines. Follow the novena in their facebook page:  FCJ Sisters and Friends Philippines. You can access the previous days on our website also.
