Profile

Raised in a pious family, she was a deeply religious child. Moved to Turin, Italy at age 12. Made a temporary vow of chastity at age 18. At age 26 she returned to Savigliano, Italy to care for her ailing father. Underwent a successful back surgery in 1887, and made a pilgrimage to Lourdes, France to give thanks for her health. There she felt a call to spend her life caring for the poor. In Savigliano she began caring for orphans. In April 1881 she helped found the Sisters of the Holy Family to care for orphans, the poor, and the elderly sick; she served as its superior for the rest of her life. Helped found four more houses of the Sisters. Predicted the date of her own death.
