Founded probably at Poitiers, 1800, by Father Coudrin (died 1837), established at Paris (Rue Picpus), 1805. Formally approved in 1817 by Pius VII, in 1825 by Leo XII, and in 1840 by Gregory XVI, it has been frequently entrusted by the Holy See with missionary work, more especially in island groups of the Pacific. They are also engaged in the instruction of children, the exercise of perpetual adoration, and practises of mortification. The members take simple vows for life and are governed by a superior-general residing at Braine-le-Comte, Belgium. Statistics: 9 provinces; 3 missions; 50 houses; 800 religious.
