An association

founded by Monsignor Suhard, Bishop of Bayeux-Lisieux (1928-1931). This association testifies to the place of children in the great Teresian spiritual family.

children are particularly entrusted to Saint Thérèse. Every first Sunday of the month, in Lisieux, pilgrims' mass is celebrated for them.

The parents and their families receive spiritual support there. In the light of the example given by Louis and Zélie Martin, they are encouraged to work for the spiritual awakening and the Christian education of their children. This is why it is important that the children are registered by a close family member, a godfather or a godmother, who can participate in this wonderful task of forming hearts.


“Very dear Saint Thérèse, with this letter we come to ask you to place Anne Rose under your protection. All the children of our family are registered as Petits Protégés. We trust you and know that you will protect and guide her throughout her life. ” Mme A. (Vosges)

“Dear Saint Thérèse, I am the godmother of a little Julie born in Brittany. We know you will watch over her and protect her for her entire life. We hope that she is flooded with Faith throughout her life and that she is flooded with Faith throughout her life and that she will know how to communicate it around her. ” J and D F. (Vosges)
