Marcellin Champagnat was born on 20th May 1789 in Rosey, Marlhes, near St Etienne (Loire), France, the youngest of 10 children. From John Baptist, his father, committed to the ideals of the French Revolution, he learned his love of work and his spirit of enterprise. Marie, his mother, and his aunt, a religious expelled from her convent by the Revolution, cultivated his piety, his Christian charity, and his devotion to the Blessed Virgin.
