"In Jesus we find everything"
From the Rule written by the Founder (the Good Father) in the early years of the community:
“In Jesus we find everything: his birth, his life and his death; that is our rule.”
In some countries our Congregation is known by the name "Picpus", after rue de Picpus, the street where our central house was established shortly after the community's foundation. The french Provincial house of the Sisters is still in that house, as well as a community of Brothers.
Our mission can be summarized as: to contemplate, live and announce God's Love which was made flesh in Jesus, especially through Eucharistic Adoration and service of the most needy.
On Christmas day 2000 the Congregation has celebrated its two hundredth anniversary. The Congregation wants to unite itself to the whole Church in this new Millenium, seeing this as an important time of personal and communal renewal.
More information on our Congregation is available at this site in three languages.
