Sister Bridget Connor, a Grey Nun of the Sacred Heart, is hosting an art exhibition and sale of her artwork for the benefit of the Asylee Women Enterprise of Baltimore.The exhibition will be held on September 9, 2023 from 3:30 p.m.—7:00 p.m. at St. Joseph University Church, 3269 Main Street in Buffalo, NY.
Asylee Women Enterprise (AWE) journeys with asylum seekers and other forced migrants as they navigate the immigration legal process, begin to heal from past trauma, and re-build their lives in Baltimore.The seeds of AWE were planted over a decade ago. Sisters from eight Catholic Congregations of women religious serving in Baltimore with AWE founder Molly Corbett, began working together in 2011 to provide housing and a network of community to women seeking asylum in Baltimore. The Grey Nuns of the Sacred Heart were among the eight communities. While AWE maintains close relationships with these founding communities, AWE is now a secular 501©3 organization governing itself, but very much depending on donations to continue its awesome work.
