Call to Welcome & Protect Afghan Refugees

Pope Francis asks all nations across the globe to welcome and protect vulnerable Afghans who are fleeing their country.

“In these troubled times that see Afghans seeking refuge,” he said during the Angelus, “I pray for the most vulnerable among them. I pray that many countries will welcome and protect those seeking a new life.”

Brigidine Sisters and our associates, colleagues and partners in ministry continue to pray and advocate for all seeking safety and asylum.

We continue to support our Brigidine Asylum Seekers Project ( in Australia and join with others elsewhere who are involved in welcoming and protecting those who flee their homelands.
