The works


The Misericordia Sisters founded several works.

Today, the sisters are still present on Boards of directors of “La Petite Maison de la Miséricorde” in Montreal and at the “Carrefour de la Miséricorde” in Gatineau.

At La Petite Maison de la Miséricorde, in Montréal, we welcome with respect and empathy, women heads of single-parent families and their children by offering individualized support to help her to restore confidence and autonomy, and on the other hand, various family services.
