Tarbes was founded in France on August 14th 1843 by six young peasant girls who had a special experience of God, which urged them to live TOGETHER a life of
contemplation. Thus living in communion, they became sensitive to the needs of the people around and responded enthusiastically to their call to educate children & care for the sick. Later they responded to other forms of service.
