Sisters of the Little Company of Mary

The Little Company of Mary is a Roman Catholic religious institute of women (also referred to as the Blue Sisters) dedicated to caring for the suffering, the sick and the dying.[1][2][3] The order was founded in 1877 England by Venerable Mary Potter.

This religious institute is distinct from Company of Mary, an institute for men (also Roman Catholic) founded by Saint Louis de Montfort in 1713.
