Product Description

Born in France in 1844, St. Leonie Aviat co-founded, alongside Blessed Louis Brisson, a religious congregation focused on outreach to young factory workers who needed homes, education and support with the onset of the Industrial Revolution. Addressing these and a variety of other needs throughout the world, Mother Aviat remained faithful and zealous in her ministry. By the time of her death in 1914, she had instilled a spirit of service through these simple word: "Let us work for the happiness of others.”
