Comment Email Print
¬†Sister Bridie Dowd, former director of the Passage day centre in central London, has been awarded an Honorary Order of the British Empire for her work with London's homeless, it was confirmed this week. As director of the Passage centre in Victoria from 1992 to 1999, Sister Bridie's drive and enthusiasm helped raise £28 million to develop the Passage night shelter, which now houses around 50 homeless people every night of the year. The Irish nun, who is currently on sabbatical in Berkeley, California, will be presented with the honorary award when she returns to London in July. Regions minister Hilary Armstrong, said: "She has left a tremendous legacy at the Passage, of care and support for people who are vulnerable."
