About Our Congregation
Welcome to the website of the Little Sisters of the Poor.
It means infinity, continuity, and agreement. In other words, it symbolizes mature agreement of the entire personality, agreement with the elderly, and agreement within Christ.
It refers to the path of faithfulness and endlessness.
Above all, it refers to the absolute and end of life. It also embraces purity and innocence.
A Little Sister is helping an elderly cross the threshold of our home (nursing home). It is the mission of our apostolate. The elderly figure is in the front, and a Little Sister is in the back, and they are walking. It means that we follow in the footsteps of Christ through apostolate, which is the legacy that St. Jeanne Jugan inherits us.
