Our Founder

Born on 31st January 1673, Louis Mary Grignion, popularly known as Montfort, grew to be a prophet in his times, He saw God in the poor and gave his life for their cause. In him welled up a constant spring of love, courage, self-surrendering service and commitment for the cause of the poor and the downtrodden. And the source of this unending spring was always God. He died on 28th April, 1716, but his spirit lives on today in the congregations of Montfort Brothers of St.Gabriel, Priests of the company of Mary and Daughters of Wisdom.
