Along with the foundress, Madeleine-Sophie Barat, she was a prominent early member of the Society of the Sacred Heart. She founded the congregation's first communities in the United States. She spent the last half of her life teaching and serving the people of the Midwestern United States, then the western frontier of the nation. Duchesne was beatified on May 12, 1940, and canonized on July 3, 1988, by the Roman Catholic Church. Her feast day is celebrated on November 18.
