Missionary Oblate Sisters: Vision and Mission
Bruno-Jofré draws extensively from private archives and oral histories to bring to light the inner life of the congregation and their educational work. She demonstrates that the Sisters played an important role in building a French Canadian identity in Manitoba and Quebec and provides a glimpse into their complex relationship with the Oblate Fathers including their role as auxiliaries in the residential schools.
