In 1793, when the French Revolution was at its height, all religious congregations were banned and Jeanne-Antide was forced to leave the Daughters of Charity. She returned to her home knowing that she would carry on what she had learned from St. Vincent de Paul. She cared for the sick, the wounded, and the poor – all of whom grew numerous during the chaos of the French Revolution. Jeanne-Antide also taught the children, helped the priests who were forced to hide, and gathered Christians in prayer.
