More information

Aubert first came to New Zealand in 1860 and formed the Congregation of the Holy Family to educate M?ori children.[2] She founded a religious order, the Daughters of Our Lady of Compassion in 1892. Aubert later started two hospitals in Wellington; the first, St Joseph's Home for the Incurables in 1900, and Our Lady's Home of Compassion in 1907.



Aubert devoted her life to helping others. Her work took her from France to Auckland then to Hawke’s Bay, to the Whanganui River and finally to Wellington. And along the way, she founded a new Catholic congregation, cared for children and the sick, by skilfully combining M?ori medicine and P?keh? science, and wrote books in M?ori, English and French adding significantly to a higher cultural understanding and literary heritage.
