Join us at the Alexander Heritage and Research Library Te Rerenga mai o te Kāuru for a talk on the life and legacy of Suzanne Aubert, given by Dr Chris van der Krogt.

Suzanne Aubert left France at the age of 25 to become a missionary, joining Bishop Pompallier in the Diocese of Auckland where she taught Māori girls. In 1883 she travelled to Hiruhārama on the Whanganui River to revive the Catholic Mission and to teach and care for local Māori and eventually unwanted children. Here she founded the Daughters of Our Lady of Compassion which continues to this day as the Sisters of Compassion, based in Island Bay, Wellington.

Dr Chris van der Krogt is a retired Senior Lecturer in the History Programme at Massey University. He specialises in NZ Religious History and is currently writing a history of the Catholic Church in the Manawatu-Whanganui region.

Part of the W. H. Oliver Humanities Research Academy Whanganui Seminars 2021.

This partnership between the Alexander Heritage and Research Library Te Rerenga mai o te Kāuru, the Whanganui Regional Museum and Massey University's W. H. Oliver Humanities Research Academy aims to raise awareness of the presence of history in the local community as well as celebrating students embarking on careers in the rich field of New Zealand historical research.
