Brigidine Sisters have a commitment to deepening our understanding of the complexity of factors that threaten asylum seekers and refugees in our world today. We remember the challenging words of Jesus: “I was a stranger and you welcomed me” and the example of St Brigid of Kildare who said “What is mine is theirs”!
We continue to seek out ways to deepen partnerships and be in solidarity with others who take decisive action for social and ecological justice. We also pray for all refugees seeking asylum, and by our practical support, attempt to welcome and assist them in their search for safety and a better life.
Brigidine Sister Bernadine Kelly CSB recently took part in an event in Wangaratta – joining with others to call for greater justice for refugees in Australia.
