Social & Ecological Justice

As Brigidines, we stand in reverence for the community of life and will continue to engage with others in a variety of ways to further compassion and justice for humanity and for planet Earth.

We have a growing appreciation that everything is connected. Thus our focus and our concerns for eco-justice as well as for social justice remain at the heart of our Brigidine commitment.

As Pope Francis reminds us: “We are not faced with two separate crises, one environmental and the other social, but rather with one complex crisis which is both social and environmental.” (Laudato Si’, 139)
