Labouré’s mission is to rescue Catholic religious vocations from the barrier of student loan debt. Will you join us in rescuing vocations?

Most Reverend Robert E. Barron, Auxiliary Bishop of Los Angeles

Bishop Barron Coat of Arms"I personally value the process of the Labouré Society which involves those receiving assistance in the fundraising effort. This valuable training will prepare them with skills for the nonprofit and fund raising aspects of a life of service to the Catholic Church. I heartily support the work of the Labouré Society and wish to encourage their founders and members to continue this mission of charity." 

 

Sr. Faustina, Winter Class 2016

"Recently our Lord has been inviting me to recall His providence in my life and seeking a greater trust in His providence for the future.  The experience with Laboure always comes to mind as the most tangible and concrete experience of God's providence and the power of the Holy Spirit's guidance when facing many obstacles.  For this I am grateful and the fruit continues to reveal itself!"

Praise for Labouré

 
  • "It's hard for me to imagine if Labouré didn't exist because having student loans and needing to work with Labouré changed my life. And so I would even say today that I was grateful to have student loans."

    Sr. Josephine Garrett, Class of 2013, Labouré Alum, Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth
  • Bishop Conley coat of arms"Greetings in the Lord! I am writing to you because I have witnessed the important, life changing work of the Labouré Society within my diocese...The Labouré Society is a critically important apostolate serving an urgent need in the church today."

  • "The sobering reality of major debt can often discourage such candidates. Not only does the Labouré Society offer practical means of quickly paying back such debt, but it promises to these women that following the call is indeed possible."
