Camille Lefebvre, before 1895

Camille Lefebvre, C.S.C. (14 February 1831 – 28 January 1895) was a Holy Cross father and vicar general for the Acadians.

Camille Lefebvre went in 1864, along with Bishop John Sweeny, to New Brunswick intending to provide education to the Catholic population who were French speaking. This group was predominantly made up of the Acadian population.[1]

He originally was a primary school teacher before being ordained a priest in 1852.[2]
