The Sisters of Compassion founded by Suzanne Aubert, and the New Zealand Catholic Bishops Conference agreed that the first Sunday of October would be marked as a day of celebration for the Venerable Suzanne Aubert. The purpose of this important national day of celebration is to promote and celebrate the spirituality and good works of Venerable Suzanne Aubert to as many people as possible. This year it will be on 3 October.
Her spirit lives on today in the work of the Sisters of Compassion. They are engaged in social work, pastoral care, prison and hospital chaplaincies, education, working with refugee and disadvantaged migrant communities, residential and home care of the sick and the elderly and support of people developing home gardens.
