November 6, 2009. Sister Brigid shares her vocation story as a Sister of Mercy to the 7th graders at Santa Barbara Catholic School. She discussed her ministry at Alee Shelter in uplifting the condition of abused women and children, the importance of promoting a safe environment for all that is free of human suffering and attending to those who need help. Mercy Associate Ms. Bernadette Alcantara, invited Sr. Brigid to talk to the students as part of her lesson on social justice in her Religion class. The 7th grade students collected, sorted and boxed toys, clothes, books and shoes which they donated to Alee Shelter.
