Little Sisters of the Poor (L.S.P.) We are an international congregation living the Beatitudes and serving the
needy elderly in the spirit of St. Jeanne Jugan, one of our
Church’s newest saints (canonized October 11, 2009!).
Through our fourth vow of hospitality, we dedicate our
lives to the aged poor, with whom we become one family.
The words of St. Jeanne Jugan are our inspiration as we
spend our lives in humble service: “Making the elderly
happy, that is what counts. . .Never forget that the poor
are Our Lord; it is Jesus whom you care for in them.”
Through our vocation we wish to give quiet witness to
the dignity of every human life, until the very end. The
Association Jeanne Jugan is comprised of Catholic lay men
and women who share in our spirit and mission. Visit our
