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 Barron Coat of Arms"I personally value the process of the Labouré Society which involves those receiving assistance in the fundraising effort. This valuable training will prepare them with skills for the nonprofit and fund raising aspects of a life of service to the Catholic Church. I heartily support the work of the Labouré Society and wish to encourage their founders and members to continue this mission of charity."

  • "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 ongoing support of Labouré with its mentors and accountability partners can give you the confidence that aspirants are not just pushed out the door with a manual but rather they are accompanied through the whole process. This is undoubtedly the reason why Labouré has had a nearly perfect success rate with the aspirants who join its program."
