A few years before the canonisation of Saint Thérèse, Father Gabriel MARTIN, a priest from Vendée, received the first intuitions of the project of the foundation of the Oblate Sisters of Saint Thérèse.
Miss Béatrix DOUILLARD, become Mother Marie-Thérèse of Mercy carried out the project.
The 6th April 1933, the Congregation is recognised by the Church of Bayeux-Lisieux.
By taking on this mission of following the desire of Saint Thérèse, Father MARTIN passed on a great loved for the Church and a great will to serve it.
Religious and of an apostolic life, we live in small communities.
- In France : in Paris and Alençon, in Vendée, Calvados, Charente-Maritime and Landes regions.
- In Africa : in Chad and in Central Africa.
For 75 years, the sisters have lived in the Buissonnets in Lisieux at the service of the pilgrims and visitors.
