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 Cordileone Coat of Arms"Each Labouré aspirant and their classmates represent a new wave of growth in the Church."

    Most Reverend Salvatore J. Cordileone, Archbishop of San Francisco, CA,
  • "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." 

    Liam Rogers ,
  • "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."
