The Brigidine Asylum Seekers Project (BASP) is a Melbourne-based initiative of the Brigidine Sisters which aims to:
• Provide hospitality and practical support for people seeking asylum;
• Actively network with like-minded individuals and groups who are working for justice for asylum seekers;
• Promote advocacy for the rights of people seeking asylum;
• Engage in education about asylum seekers’ issues.
After another busy and challenging year, Newsletter No 86 provides an overview of some of the latest activities of those involved in the this Project.
Brigidine Sisters in each area of the Congregation, are engaged in taking decisive action for justice for asylum seekers and refugees and hold in prayer those who have had to leave their homes, their families and their countries.
These weeks of Advent in the lead up to Christmas are a very appropriate time to be aware of all those around the world who are marginalized and suffering as a result of displacement, war or persecution.
Will there be room in the inn of our hearts for those millions of women, children and men who still seek a safe haven?
