"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." 

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.

Praise for Labouré

 
  • "Without the continued support and guidance of Labouré my vocation would have been postponed for decades, and possibly lost forever. With Labouré's help, I was able to resolve six figure student loan debt in 24 months rather than 20 years."

    Bill Duffert, Summer Class of 2015,
  • Bishop Cozzens coat of arms"Labouré plays a vital role locally and nationally in building a culture of vocations."

  • "The Labouré Society is really the Church at its best ... these men and women are starting their formation by getting the people skills, the business skills, the prudence skills, and the boundaries that need to be in place for successful ministry through this amazing program. And so I thank God every day for the gift of the Labouré Society."
