2022 Assembly


RENATE-France – Country report of inaugural meeting. Marie Hélène Halligon, olcgs.


The RENATE-France group exists since the end of the very first RENATE General Assembly! We were two of us from France: Sr Solange Rault and me, and we didn’t want to stop working together against Trafficking when back in France.

So, we began to find other sisters who were working against Trafficking in Paris and around the country, with a view to creating a network together. But knowing what Religious life is like – moving from place to place, country to country for the purpose of serving vulnerable people – the composition has changed a lot in 10 years!

A few of us from 2011 to 2019

With Sr Imelda’s permission, we called our group: “RENATE-France”, and are looking forward to becoming an official Association.

At the moment, we number 12 women Religious from different countries and congregations, establishing little by little a national network, linking with Associations, G & NGOs, and working together and with them to eradicate Trafficking in Human Beings by all means we can, sharing information, prayers, articles… see our page:

We meet every two months, sharing and trying to find ways to raising awareness (public, youth, Religious women…) or lobbying the government. May the Shepherd Lord help us all so that Trafficking and Exploitation may be eradicated in 2030…
