Our Founders & History

In 1791, Alexis and Victoire de Méjanès along with several other faith-filled persons, began to form a community in Argancy, France, centered on the Incarnation of the Son of God.


In 1807, after the death of her husband, Anne Victoire de Méjanès, a woman of vision, founded in Metz, France, the Sisters of the Holy Infancy of Jesus and Mary, better known as the Sisters of St. Chretienne. Victoire and her companions made their first public promises under the patronage of St. Chretienne, virgin and apostle. The Congregation was officially begun.


With genuine love and awareness of the needs of her time, she responded to the prophetic mission of manifesting God’s tenderness and mercy to all. She dedicated herself with her Sisters to serving the poor through the corporal and spiritual works of mercy.

Over the years, the Sisters of St. Chretienne have experienced the support and collaboration of many family members and co-workers with whom they have shared love, compassion, prayer and their charism.
