Marie Barbier de l'Assomption
Barbier, who succeeded Bourgeoys as Superior General of the congregation, was instrumental in furthering its cause in New France. A sometime ally of Bishop Saint-Vallier, she spent many years struggling to keep the congregation free of some of his more oppressive decrees.
Barbier later held several administrative posts and continued to teach and work until her death.
