A Catholic religio-charitable association established by Mary Hoxsey in Saint Louis, Missouri in December 1889, and incorporated on January 6, 1902. Members call on the poor in their homes to relieve material needs and to encourage them to live according to the tenets of their religion and to be solicitous about the religious upbringing of their children. It conducts cooking and sewing schools, hospices for women, altar societies, etc., and cooperates with the work done by juvenile courts. Certain religious congregations are affiliated with it and are allotted funds to execute their charitable labors. Its branches are under the jurisdiction of a general council.
