Saint Marie-Eugenie de Jesus Short life History

Saint Marie-Eugénie de Jésus is also known as
• Anne-Eugénie Milleret de Brou
• Eugénie Milleret de Brou
• Eugénie Milleret de Bron
• Marie Eugénie Milleret de Brou
• Mere Marie Eugénie

she was raised in an educated and intellectual family with no faith, but who apparently went through some of the motions since she received her first Communion on Christmas 1829 at age twelve. She had a conversion experience, came to the faith, and felt a call to religious life by hearing the Lenten sermons of the Dominican Henri Lacordaire at the Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris, France. She made a short novitiate with the Sisters of the Visitation at Cote Saint-Andre, but did not take vows.

During a pilgrimage to the shrine of Sainte-Anne d’Auray in 1825, Eugenie felt called to found a teaching institute that would work in the world, but kept monastic observances. In 1839 she founded the group later named the Congregation of the Assumption (Religious of the Assumption, Sisters of the Assumption) to perform this mission. The Assumptionists received papal approval in 1888, and continue their good work in 34 countries around the world today.
