Praise for Labouré
“Without the continued support and guidance of Labouré my vocation would have been postponed for decades, and possibly lost forever. With Labouré’s help, I was able to resolve six figure student loan debt in 24 months rather than 20 years.”
“The Labouré Society assists these individuals to find the resources to overcome this obstacle.”
“Those of us given the blessing of material gifts are called to share those gifts with others and there are many opportunities to do so. In the Gospel, at the the anointing at Bethany, a woman comes with an alabaster jar of perfumed oil, breaks the jar, and pours it on Our Lord’s head. There were those present who thought it to be a waste. However, she gave it all without reservation. Those who enter into a religious vocation give completely of themselves and in the eyes of the world this can appear to be foolish or even a waste. A gift to the Labouré Society changes the direction of a life because it helps a person realize a dream that God has placed directly on their hearts. We were honored to have met Toni Garrett (Sister Josephine) and to have been able to help her realize this dream. We would encourage anyone of means to examine their gifts and help others realize their own dreams.
“…The ongoing support of Labouré with its mentors and accountability partners can give you the confidence that aspirants are not just pushed out the door with a manual but rather they are accompanied through the whole process. This is undoubtedly the reason why Labouré has had a nearly perfect success rate with the aspirants who join its program.”
