Congratulations to Brigid Arthur CSB who was awarded a Catholic Social Services Victoria (CSSV) Life Membership Award at a dinner in Melbourne on 30 August.

During the evening, it was acknowledged that Brigid, together with Catherine Kelly CSB, was one of the co-founders of the Brigidine Asylum Seekers Project (BASP) in 2001.

Brigid’s tireless leadership and work with the Brigidine Asylum Seekers Project since then was celebrated. Well done Brigid!
