Our Foundress

St. Claudine Thevenet

Claudine’s ideal was to make God known and loved by means of CHRISTIAN EDUCATION in all social milieux. This ideal remains the aim of the Congregation with the preference, inherited from the Foundress, for the young and among these for the poor.

What was her pedagogy?

It was a system:

a) of attention to the individual stressing the dignity of each person

b) of participation and collaboration because love cannot develop except in a united school community.

c) of giving practical formation enabling the young while living with the present, to prepare for the future.

d) of social formation in the ability to take their place in society with confidence.
