Association Jeanne Jugan

The Association Jeanne Jugan offers Catholic men and women the opportunity of sharing in the spirituality of the Little Sisters of the Poor, of participating in our mission of hospitality, and of helping to spread the charism of Saint Jeanne Jugan in various social and professional arenas.

After a year of spiritual preparation, new members are inducted into the Association Jeanne Jugan each year on May 1st, the feast of St. Joseph, patron of our Congregation.

A.J.J. activities at the St. Louis Residence include:

  • Volunteering in various areas of the Home
  • Serving as lectors and Eucharistic ministers at Mass
  • Visiting Residents who are hospitalized, room-bound or in need of special† attention
  • Helping the Little Sisters as needed
  • Pitching in to help with fundraising activities and events
  • Assisting with A.J.J. sponsored activities for the Residents such as monthly Bingo, holiday festivities and other special events
  • Assuring a comforting presence with the dying Residents
