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,

  • "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 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."
