Holy Family of Bordeaux

The Association of the Holy Family of Bordeaux was founded in France in 1820 by Pierre-Bienvenu Noailles, a canon of that city. His vision was to allow the expression of the Christian life in various forms.[1]

The association is composed of:

  • Religious Sisters who perform active ministry in schools, hospitals and parishes.
  • Religious Sisters who live a contemplative way of life.
  • Women who belong to the Secular Institute of the Holy Family of Bordeaux.
  • Lay Associates, who are committed to supported the works of the Association.
  • Priest Associates, who cooperate in the work of the Association.[2]
