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

 
  • "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 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?"

    Most Reverend Alberto Rojas, Auxiliary Bishop of Chicago, IL,
  • "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."
