The Congregation of the Little Sisters of
Saint Therese of the Child Jesus is a
Catholic congregation co-founded by
Marie Francoise Camelia Lohier on
December 14, 1948.  She loved the
poor peasants and the down-trodden so
much that she also collaborated with
Louis Farnese Louis-Charles in the
foundation of another congregation on
February 11, 1960 called the Little
Brothers of St. Therese.

Today, around 207 Sisters in the
congregation uphold the teachings of
their founder/foundress with unselfish
love and humble service to the poor.

The Little Sister of St. Therese keeps more than 50 orphans from poor families.  
They provide them food, health, and education services.

Amidst poverty and the lack of resources to take care of their own needs and their
existing clients, the Little Sisters have established several other missions through
out the country like schools, clinics, sanitariums, etc.  They also have feeding
programs that benefit poor families and handicapped elderly.

To support the Little Sisters' mission to contribute to the country's social,
economical and technological development, the Love of Vicentica Foundation
currently provides monetary assistance to some of their programs.  However, the
organization aims to continue to seek ways to stretch out its support to the other
areas of necessity.
