One Spirit – One Mission – One Hope. Opportunity offered by UNANIMA


The Brigidine Congregation is a member of UNANIMA International (UI).

UNANIMA International is a Non–Governmental Organization that works  for justice and peace on behalf of women and children (particularly those living in poverty), migrants and refugees, those trafficked for profit and the homeless. A particular focus is the impact of climate change on the most vulnerable and how through local initiatives we can contribute positively to the care of our common home.

UNANIMA’s Motto is One Spirit – One Mission – One Hope.  Since 2003, UNANIMA International members have continued to work tirelessly for justice through collaboration, advocacy and education.

Jean Quinn DW  is the current Director of UI  and Margaret Fyfe csb is our Brigidine representative on the UI Board.
