Fr. Mathias wolff
Founder of J.M.J.

Fr. Mathias wolff, a priest belonging to the society of Jesus (Jesuits), is the founder of the society of Jesus Mary Joseph. He was born on 6th March 1779 at Diekirch in Luxembourg. He was a missionary in Nederlands. Finding the need of liberating the Catholics and educating the poor Christian girls in Holland, he founded the Society of Jesus Mary & Joseph in the year 1822, with 6 Sisters. He left behind a legacy of ever-adaptable apostolic availability, a Charism that is so profound and ever new. Slowly this Society grew in numbers, types of charitable services and spread to India, Indonesia, Rome, Africa and Australia. The sisters were asked to “keep the four corners of the world in their heart” and to “work like a giant”. Gradually they were available to take - up all types of works and needs including education, medical care and social services. Today there are 1300 sisters all over the world.
