Our history
Emilia d’Hooghvorst

At the origin of this congregation
is a Belgian woman,
Emilie d’Oultremont d’Hooghvorst,
spouse and mother of four children

God’s tender love for the world
and the indifference of
humankind in welcoming this love
affected her deeply.
She understood that she was invited
to live for Jesus like Mary.

The congregation came to birth
in the heart of Emilie,
December 8, 1854.
