Our Mindset

"One charisma to the service of life and health”.

The founding thought of “Las Hermanas de la Caridad Dominicanas de la Presentación de la Santísima Virgen de Tours". Marie Poussepin’s service for the sick has its origin on loving God and loving thy neighbor; Jesus Christ is the role model of its pastoral action.

Marie Poussepin, our founder, has established clear guidelines for all of those that wish to care for the sick. Today we define those guidelines as:
