*In celebration of St. Marguerite d'Youville and as a visible sign of her compassionate love and concern for the poor, the Marguerite d'Youville Fund for the Needy was founded in 1994 by St. Mary's staff as an on-going source of funds to help those in need with basic necessities such as food, medications, and transportation. In 1737, Marie-Marguerite d'Youville and her son converted their home into a dwelling for the poor and elderly. Soon, other like-minded women joined them and in 1755, these women were formally recognized as the "Soeur Grises" (Grey Nuns), the Sisters of Charity of Montreal, Canada. In 1878, the sisters were asked to come to Lewiston, Maine to begin a French-speaking school, and eventually a hospital too. In1889, the Sisters of Charity founded the first Catholic hospital in Maine (eventually known as St. Mary's General Hospital).
