The Sisters at Maison Jésus-Marie were jointly involved in discovering another religious congregation present in the Saint-Jean-Longueuil Diocese: the Petites Sœurs de l’Assomption (psa). Sister Céline Héon, psa, gave a detailed description of her community during a talk on May 3rd.
Starting with the founders, Father Étienne Pernet and Antoinette Fage, the guest speaker spoke eloquently of the charism of this international congregation focused on free health care for the poor, the little ones and the sick. The mission was adapted to the cultural context of the time, which led to working with families and promoting the advancement of women, through animation and accompaniment of groups and deepening of the faith, while not forgetting caring for the sick.
The Congregation of des Petites Sœurs de l’Assomption (psa), one of the five families of the Assumption, is currently active in 20 countries and reaches out to 22 different nationalities.
