St. Marguerite d’Youville (1701-1771) is called the Mother of Universal Charity because of her concern and care for all people. She founded the Sisters of Charity of Montreal (or the Grey Nuns), who have dedicated themselves to those in need.
The Grey Nuns arrived in St. Albert in 1863, immediately establishing an orphanage, a school and a hospital to serve the needs of First Nations, Metis and white settlers. Since their arrival more than 400 Grey Nuns have provided over 3000 combined years of service to the community.
Today, approximately 220 elders reside at Youville Home.
Covenant Health’s mission to continue the healing ministry of Jesus by serving with compassion, upholding the sacredness of life in all stages and caring for the whole person echos the vision and mission of the founders of Youville Home.
