150 years in where the founder Claude Marie Dubuis as well as the sisters, have served thousands of people through a variety of ministries including education, health care, pastoral and social services. As we celebrate the founding of 1869, we look back in gratitude for God’s abundant blessings and look forward in faith and hope for a bright future.
