The Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary (Soeurs des Saints Noms de Jésus et de Marie)[1] is a teaching religious institute founded at Longueuil, Québec, Canada in 1843 by Blessed Mother Marie-Rose (Eulalie Durocher, 1811- 1849)[2] for the Christian education of young girls.[3]

Their motto is: "Jésus et Marie, Ma Force et Ma Gloire" ("Jesus and Mary, my strength and my glory").

Since 1843, the SNJM's mission to educate young girls has extended beyond Québec[4] into other Canadian provinces, including Ontario [5] and Manitoba.[6] Their mission of education also continues internationally, in the United States, [7] Lesotho,[8] and South America.
