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's Coat of Arms"These young people desire to be generous with their lives in service to Christ and His Church. We ought to be generous in our efforts to support them."

  • "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."
