St. Louise de Marillac was born on August 12, 1591.  Widowed early by a relatively rich man leaving her with an only son, she came under the influence of St. Vincentde Paul with whom she shared the same burning love for God and the poor.  Eventually, she was commissioned by St. Vincent to take charge of the first batch of the 12 Daughters of Charity.  In this capacity, she was given the authority to draw up the rules for the company and brought to reality St. Vincent's desire to keep the Sisters out of the standard requirements of enclosure as he exhorted them, thus, St. Louise died on March 15, 1660.  In recognittion of her ardent zeal to serve the poor, she henceforth became the patroness of Christian social workers and the (D.C.) Daughters of Charity. Continues the work left by St. Louise de Marillac, the D.C. sisters built a community where they can ehlp the poor by giving them some knowledge in an affordable way, from there the SLMES was discovered and get starter.  There are many Daughters of Chairyt Schools in the Philippines handling Saint Louise de Marillac Educational System and one of these D.C. schools in (SHC) Sacred Heart College, which is managed by nuns.  many students don't know much about the "sister school" of their own institution and how many D.C. schools are there.
