Charism of Euphrasie Barbier,
the Founder of the Sisters of Our Lady of the Missions
Our College is dedicated to the Sacred Heart. Our missionary call is to live and make known the compassionate love of the Heart of Jesus and share in the mission of the Holy Spirit.
We do this through:
Ignite the Passion: inspiring young women to change the world – me aro ki te hā o Hineahuone.
Our Mission is to encounter the compassionate Heart of Jesus through his example of the Gospels. The expression of our Catholic Character is deeply connected to the virtues of Faith, Hope and Justice and our Charism comes from the Sisters of Our Lady of the Missions envisioned through their founder, Euphrasie Barbier.
We express this through Communion, Contemplation and Mission, and action it when we use our Head, Heart and Hands . . . ‘She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future. When she speaks, her words are wise, and she gives instructions with kindness’ (Proverbs 31:25-26)
‘Take heed the strength and dignity of women’
