St. Antida Day: Srs Charity of St. Joan Antida


#1

These sisters were founded after the French Revolution. St. Joan Antida was a Daughter of Charity and learned under St. Vincent himself.

The sisters’ website is down, so one may have to snail mail or phone an inquiry:

I don’t understand. St. Vincent de Paul died in 1660; St. Joan Antida was born in 1765…

Mayhap something was lost in translation. She trained in Paris where the DCs were founded, from what I understand. Apologies for any errors.
