WHY I BECAME AN AJJ
I wanted to deepen my faith as I felt I was not doing enough about it! St. Jeanne Jugan has helped me so much.
I had some family problems along the way and the AJJ helped me to sort myself out. Problems arise from time top time but with St. Jeanne Jugan, I can cope.
It was the Lord that led me to the Association many years ago, and I love St. Jeanne Jugan very much. I love to assist the Sisters in their work.
When I was invited to the Association Jeanne Jugan I wondered what was the difference from volunteering. I soon felt the deeper call and I love to help the Little Sisters.
I can see the hand of God in the way St. Jeanne Jugan was led and the way God is leading me. I love her spirituality and try to read something of her or the Congregation of the Little Sisters of the Poor every day.
