Welcome to the website of the Daughters of Wisdom, United States Province. The United States Province was established in 1949.


The spirituality of the Daughters of Wisdom is that of seeking Wisdom in ordinary, everyday experience.


As Daughters of Wisdom, we see all reality— creation, humankind, the joys and struggles of life—as interconnected sacred reality. For more than 300 years, we have ministered to countless women, men, and children, desiring to share with all our heritage of Wisdom spirituality.


We follow in the spiritual footsteps of our co-founders, St. Louis Marie de Montfort and Blessed Marie Louise Trichet. At the beginning of the 18th century in France, they were captivated by Divine Wisdom.



We are called in community to seek and to contemplate Divine Wisdom, present in a world that hungers for meaning, justice and compassion. We seek to bring the message of Jesus, Incarnate Wisdom, to people experiencing injustice, violence, poverty and oppression, especially women and children.

Wisdom Reflections

Co-founder of the Daughters of Wisdom with St. Louis de Montfort in 1703, Blessed Marie Louise Trichet is characterized by her blend of caution and boldness, prudence, daring and risk. She founded 36 communities of Daughters of Wisdom in France between the years 1725-1748 and established foundations for free church schools, care of the sick and administered large maritime hospitals. As Treasurer of the Hospital in Poitiers, France, she worked with common sense, clear judgement and sensitivity. Above all, she was noted for her love of those who were poor.
