Founding and Staffing Schools
The Religious of Jesus and Mary proudly continue in the ministry of education. Today, the USA-Haiti Province sponsors Thevenet Montessori School in Highland Mills, New York, and we are co-founders of Washington School for Girls in Washington, DC. Sr. Pat Brito, RJM, serves as the principal of St. Frances de Chantal School in The Bronx.
Education is also a key component of the mission work we do with the people of Haiti and with migrants in the United States.
In July of 2023, leaders of the Religious of Jesus Mary along with representatives of the RJM provinces, schools, and ministries throughout the world gathered in Mexico City to discuss Pope Francis’ call for a global alliance that joins efforts so that education generates peace, justice and acceptance among peoples. In response the congregation has expressed a formal Commitment to the Global Compact on Education in all RJM schools and ministries.
