The Holy Family of Bordeaux

is a worldwide Spiritual and Apostolic Family founded in 1820 by Pierre Bienvenu Noailles,
a priest of Bordeaux.

It is composed of women and men, youth and children, from all vocations and walks of life in
the Catholic Church – Apostolic and Contemplative Women Religious, Consecrated Secular Women,
Lay and Priest Associates.

All members, while living their own specific vocation, share the same mission, the same spirit
and aim and draw their inspiration from the Holy Family of Nazareth.

In Britain and Ireland the Holy Family includes:

  • Apostolic Religious
  • Consecrated Seculars
  • Lay and Priest Associates
  • Youth

We invite our members, past pupils, friends and those interested in knowing more about and sharing our spirituality, charism and ministries to interact with us on this site.

Today's Prayer

October 23rd, 2014 | Feast of St. John of Capistrano

"I have come to bring fire to the earth, and how I wish it were blazing already!" ( Luke 12:49-53)
Luke 12 : 49

Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love. Send forth your Spirit and they shall be crested. And you shall renew the face of the earth. O God who by the light of the Holy Spirit did instruct the hearts of the faithful grant that by that same Spirit we may be truly wise and ever rejoice in his consolation through Christ, our Lord. Amen
