On February 1 we celebrate the Feast Day of two Daughters of Charity, the Martyrs of Angers.
On the eve of the French Revolution Sisters Anne-Marie Vaillot and Odile Baumgarten were among the thirty-five Daughters who performed the mainly simple, repetitive, and obscure tasks for the poor sick at the hospital of Saint-Jean. They were numbered among a long line of Daughters of Charity who served God in the sick of Angers.
