Women’s History Month is here!

March is Women’s History Month and what better way to celebrate than to remember the life and ministry of our own Saint Mother Theodore Guerin!

Did you know that her father, Laurent, was an officer in the French Navy under Napoleon Bonaparte? Laurent was murdered when the young Anne-Thérèse (birth name of Mother Theodore) was 15 years old. After this tragic event, Anne-Thérèse devoted nearly a decade to caring for her mother and her sister. She was nearly 25 years old when she entered the Sisters of Providence of Ruillé sur-Loir, France.
