Are you looking for a deeper prayer life, supported by a fraternal life in a community that serves the needy elderly in a family-like environment?

This is the life of a Little Sister of the Poor, living the spirit of our foundress, Saint Jeanne Jugan.  She has echoed these sentiments, “What happiness for us, to be a Little Sister of the Poor!”  We feel the same way today and we’re eager to share our joy with you.
