United Kingdom and Ireland It was during a visit to London to arrange for the departure of a group of Sisters to the Missions in New Zealand that our foundress Euphrasie Barbier was invited to take over an orphanage founded by Miss Catherine Boys at Queen Anne House, Middle Street, Deal Kent. Euphrasie promised to consider the proposition, for it had long been her dream that a house in England might be available, where the Sisters, training for missionary work, could stay and learn English before embarking for missions in English speaking countries. Because of the gravity of the situation in France caused by the revolution Euphrasie also realized that a foundation in England could serve as a refuge for the Sisters in difficult times. Having said Goodbye on the 10 October 1870 to a group of Sisters going to New Zealand and also a group waiting to set sail for Tonga and Samoa, Euphrasie, on the 13 October 1870 took with her Sr. M Wilfred, two other professed Sisters and three Novices to establish the ‘First Foundation of the Congregation on English soil’ and to take over from Miss Boys the running of the orphanage at Queen Anne House. Some sisters are involved in spiritual direction, giving retreats and pastoral ministry. the province also welcome and supports student sisters from other parts of the congregation. A number of the sisters are involved in health in term of caring for the sick sisters.
