History

The History of the Sisters of Nazareth has its roots in 1851, when Victoire Larmenier, a young sister in Rennes, France was sent to England.  Six years later, she founded the first Nazareth House, in Hammersmith, London.

Since then the Congregation has grown and expanded throughout the world, always seeking to care for the poor and needy of all ages.  Read a more detailed history of the Congregation here.
