St. Therese of Lisieux and the Apostleship of Prayer

    The archives of the Carmel of Lisieux conserved a document signed by Therese Martin at the age of 12, showing that on October 15, 1885 she enrolled in the Apostleship of Prayer, an association born of the missionary desires of Jesuits at a French seminary in 1844.  St. Therese of Lisieux is now co-patron of the Apostleship of Prayer.  Learn more about the Apostleship of Prayer and Therese's relationship with it.
