Suzanne Aubert came to New Zealand to be a missionary among the people of this land-with a special care for the Māori. In 1870 when asked by Bishop Croke to abandon this call and return to her homeland, due to Auckland’s financial problems, she declined saying ‘My Lord, I came here for the Māori; I will die in the midst of them. Nobody can prevent me from doing that…’ (Sr. Angela, ‘Reminiscences’, vol. 2, page 294). This decision eventually led to the founding of New Zealand’s own congregation of Sisters.
