2010 Recipient of the Anselm Moons Award
Sr. Barbara Fried, SMIC, joined the Missionary Sisters of the Immaculate Conception in 1965, after serving with them for two years as a lay volunteer nurse in Taiwan. She returned to Taiwan again in 1976 for four years before being called to serve in the U.S. in provincial administration. In 1989 she was invited by Fr. Anselm Moons, OFM, to join the founding team of FMS. Sr. Barbara served as an integral member of the FMS staff for 17 years, aiding in programming, spiritual direction, and the overall growth of the organization. She retired from full-time ministry in 2008, but still is in regular contact with the FMS missioners and staff.
