Wake Up The World

Wake Up the World is a special series celebrating the Vatican’s 2015 Year of Consecrated Life. Explore the unique charisms, faith, and lifestyles of the many religious congregations in the Diocese of Brooklyn — and beyond!

The Little Sisters of the Poor are an international congregation of women religious founded in 1839 by Saint Jeanne Jugan. They serve the elderly poor in over 30 countries around the world, and right here in Queens, at Queen of Peace Residence. Continuing the work of St. Jeanne, their mission is to offer the neediest elderly a home where they will be welcomed as Christ, cared for as family and accompanied with dignity until God calls them to himself.
