More information

Julie Françoise-Catherine Postel was born on 28 November 1756 in Barfleur to the fisherman Jean Postel and Thérèse Levallois. Postel was the aunt to Placide Viel.



The Benedictine nuns oversaw her education in Valognes after her initial schooling and it was during that time that she discerned a call to serve God in the religious life; she took a private vow to remain chaste as a step forward in this dream. Postel founded a school for girls in Barfleur in 1774 that became a center for underground religious activities during the French Revolution for those who were unwilling to support the new regime. This school had been shut down at the Revolution's beginning.
