In 1924, fifty-three French-speaking nuns separated from their unilingual English community for cultural reasons. Since then, the Notre-Dame-du-Sacré-Cœur Congregation has continuously fought for the preservation of Acadian values. In 1943, it founded Collège Notre-Dame d’Acadie, where young Acadian women were able to get an education in French for the first time in New Brunswick. Nowadays, these open-minded nuns campaign with the same fervour for the rights of the poor and a greater role for women in the Catholic Church.
