At the Catholic Health Association US 2019 Assembly in Atlanta, Holly Austin-Gibbs, an advocate for people who’ve been trafficked and Fr Frank Morrisey OMI a canon lawyer who has assisted countless religious congregations, PJPs and healthcare providers around the world were honoured for their work. They were each invited to write a letter to their ‘younger self”.
Holly was awarded the Sr Concilia Moran award for her work on behalf of victims of human trafficking. Her story is one of courage and perserverance and can be viewed below:
