Salomé Martin - Introduction

TheresedeJesu-ovalSalomé Martin
Sister Thérèse-de-Jésus

Salomé Martin was born in Saint-Philippe de La Prairie, Quebec. Her father joined the "Patriote" movement during the troubles of 1837 and was subsequently reported missing. Her mother had to flee into the woods with her youngest children, one of whom was Salomé. She would be the first postulant to join the three foundresses of the Congregation of the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary.

An outstanding educator, she was motivated by a great missionary spirit. As the third Superior General, she sent 12 Sisters to Oregon in 1859. She relied on Providence to move forward and overcome the many difficulties along her path.

Besides the foundations in Saint-Roch de l'Achigan, Hochelaga, Saint-Louis de Gonzague and Valleyfield, she was also responsible for those in Ontario, New York, California, Florida and Manitoba.
