Praise for Labouré

 
  • "Fundraising is not just about raising money. It is about sharing my story with people and hearing their stories. It is about building relationships. It is about giving people an opportunity to become part of something beautiful. It is about being vulnerable so God can work through me. Honestly, I wouldn’t want it any other way."

    Sr. Kathryn Teresa Clemmer, Class of 2012/2013, Sister Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Immaculata
  • Bishop Rojas Coat of Arms"Your investments of time, talent, and treasure will touch and transform countless lives as each aspirant enters formation and lives out their vocation. Could there be any better investment than aiding in the salvation of souls?"

  • "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."
