Euphrasie Barbier

Euphrasie Barbier was a NZ Roman Catholic nun.
She was born in Caen France in 1829. When she was 13 she
washed other people's clothes as her job. At 17 she opened her
own business which was a laundry out of her home. One day euphrasie
barbier heads Bishop preached about his experiences in  other very poor
countries . She decided to travel around the world help marginalised
people in the poor countries.

Euphrasie  Barbier arrived in NZ in 1872 and formed the Mission Sisters.
Euphrasie passed away 18923 leaving behind many schools she had
opened and communities she had supported.

Euphrasie Barbier was a kind and generous person who was faithful to
God and her community. She confidently taught  both woman and children
who lived in poor countries.
Euphrasie love and kindness sent her all over the world to help
marginalized people.

To be like Euphrasie Barbier could have a more of a humble heart to others.  
I could also be somewhat more respectful to others. I could also be more
faithful to our Lord and Savior.
