Jesus and Mary (Religious of)

26 countries in Europe, Asia, Africa, North America, South America

The congregation's goal is to make Jesus known and loved wherever they are through Christian education and in all social environments, with a preferential option for poor youth. Following in the footsteps of St. Claudine Thévenet, its foundress, the congregation is convinced that the biggest poverty is to live and die without knowing God. It is with this idea in mind that the congregation owns and administers many different schools, from daycares to colleges, residences for young girls and elderly women, dispensaries where they are urgently needed, faith and spirituality centres, apostolic work in family and parish ministry, formation centres for women. By their witness, the sisters want to be witnesses of the goodness and mercy of the Father so that all will know that God is good and that He loves them.
