A Journey Through Time

The Conference of Charity was founded by Blessed Frédéric Ozanam (a French lawyer, literary scholar and advocate; 1813–1853) along with six like-minded individuals in Paris, France in 1833.

“Make it a practice to judge persons and things in the most favourable light at all times and under all circumstances.”
