Rita and Lamar Hunt, Jr.

"Those of us given the blessing of material gifts are called to share those gifts with others and there are many opportunities to do so. In the Gospel, at the the anointing at Bethany, a woman comes with an alabaster jar of perfumed oil, breaks the jar, and pours it on Our Lord's head. There were those present who thought it to be a waste. However, she gave it all without reservation. Those who enter into a religious vocation give completely of themselves and in the eyes of the world this can appear to be foolish or even a waste.

Liam Rogers

"The Labouré Society is the most brilliantly conceived method for building the Body of Christ I have seen in the last 50 years...Supporting Labouré has been the most heartening experience I've had since raising my own children."

Praise for Labouré

 
  • "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!"

    Sr. Faustina, Winter Class 2016,
  • Bishop Kelly Coat of Arms"I am very grateful for the existence of the society and their dedication to assisting serious young men and women who desire to serve the church as religious."

  • "Investing in Labouré is investing in the future of our faith; as our priests and religious dedicate their lives to guiding our family on our faith journey." 

    Mike Halloran,
  • "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."
