Welcome to the Infant Jesus Sisters’ international website


Founded in Rouen, France in 1662 by Fr Nicolas Barré for the education of children from poorer families, the Infant Jesus Sisters have continued over more than 350 years and in 18 countries to respond to the call to share the Good News of Jesus Christ.  


“We hear ‘both the cry of the earth and the cry of the poor’ (Pope Francis Laudato Si 49).  We collaborate with others to address injustice, inequality and the lack of respect for the dignity of each person, especially those most neglected and marginalised.  Inspired by the Spirit we respond as women full of compassion, ever ready to go forward together towards horizons of hope and joy.” (Acts of the General Chapter 2019)


We invite you to explore this website to learn about our life and mission.
