Little Daughters of Saint Joseph

A religious institute founded in Montreal, 1857, by the Sulpician, Father Antoine Mercier, to aid the clergy both by the ministry of prayer and certain temporal services, such as the manufacture of liturgical vestments, altar-linens, etc. Poor missionaries and seminarians are especially aided by the community. They have two houses in Montreal, where the mother-house is located, and carry on their work in several seminaries.
