Founded in 1950, St. Jane Frances de Chantal Parish is a
community of nearly 2000 families from many ethnic backgrounds and of
varied professional lives and interests. Its primary purpose is to enable
its members to live the life of Jesus Christ, to share their God-given
talents for the benefit of each other and of society and to pass on to
their children the rich gift of their Catholic Faith. The staff and parish
organizations described in this website seek to achieve these purposes.
The patroness of the parish, St. Jane Frances de Chantal (1572-1641) was a French woman who worked with St. Francis de Sales. She
founded the Visitation Order of nuns dedicated to the virtues of Mary
and works of charity toward the sick and the poor. The Visitation
Convent on Old Georgetown Road (now part of NIH) was the first
home of the parish.
