A Heritage of Love and Compassion

medal12We, The Little Company of Mary Sisters, are an International Marian Congregation of Women Religious who have committed our lives to pray and care for the suffering and dying of the world. We minister in countries throughout the world and strive to make visible the healing presence of Jesus in the midst of human suffering through prayer, compassion and presence.

Our prayer, as you browse this site, is that you gain an understanding of our Congregation and be inspired. If you are considering religious life, it will take time, prayer, and discernment to know where the Lord is leading you. Ultimately, you will discover that God wants only whatever is good for you, whatever leads to holiness. May you be open to God's call and come to an understanding of how you can use your gifts to make a difference in the world.



Sister Renee Celebrates 50th Jubilee

Sr Renee cropSister M. Renee Cunningham, LCM joyously celebrated her Golden Jubilee of Religious Life on September 11, 2016. A Mass of Thanksgiving was held at St. Joseph Church in Jasper, Indiana, where she has lived and ministered since 1975.

Sister Renee was born and raised in Torrance, California, in the shadow of the construction that was to become Little Company of Mary Hospital there. She received her nursing diploma from the Little Company of Mary School of Nursing and earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing from the University of Evansville and a Master’s degree in Pastoral Studies from Loyola University in New Orleans. As a Staff nurse, nursing relief supervisor, Director of Education, palliative care nurse, secretary of Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center’s Board of Directors, Chair of the hospital’s Mission Committee, member of Finance and Ethics Committee, parish nurse and ministry coordinator are just a few of the multi-faceted ministries in which she has touched so many lives.

Today, we give thanks for Sr. Renee. Her constant dedicated ministry to the people she meets, touches, and prays with, exemplifies her many spiritual gifts. She brings words of comfort, peace and IMG 0830joy to those she serves and to our own hearts. As she continues her journey, we are reminded of the countless blessings she has shared with us unselfishly. May God continue to watch over her, guide her, fill her with wisdom and strength as she ministers to those in need and bless her with joy and peace in the days and years to come.
