Venerable Madeleine d'Houet, (born "Marie Madeleine de Bonnault d'Hoüet"), inspired by zeal for God and Ignatian spirituality founded the religious order of Sisters known as Faithful Companions of Jesus.

From the order's first foundation in Amiens, France it spread quickly across the globe. Twenty seven convents of the order were established in d'Houet's lifetime with several more thereafter.

Madeleine was a devoted missionary having completed more than five hundred journeys during her years of ministry. The community founded by D'Houet is dedicated to the education of the underprivileged and marginalised, especially girls and women, in the Americas, Asia, Australia, and Europe.[1]
