Association Jeanne Jugan

The Association Jeanne Jugan is a group of Catholic adults who, after a year of formation, make an annual promise to assist the elderly in ways of hospitality. Association members do this by taking on the charism of Saint Jeanne Jugan in helping the aged through volunteer service and friendship. Members embrace the Little Sisters’ ideal of hospitality and are welcomed into the Home as part of the family.

The activities of Association Jeanne Jugan members include:

  • Bed-making
  • Assisting in feeding Residents
  • Resident parties, outings and ice cream socials
  • Laundry
  • Annual retreats
  • Visits and prayers

“For me, I truly see Jesus in the faces of the elderly as I change their beds, clean their faces, wipe their tears and let them know they are loved and never forgotten.” —Mary Bowles, AJJ Coordinator

“…it is the elderly and their gentleness and thank you’s that fill our hearts with joy.” —Mary Frances Thompkins, AJJ Member
