Description

Sixth Annual Report of St. Brigid’s Orphanage (1862) - in association with the Ladies’ Association of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul (presented at Annual Meeting, 27 November 1862). The report opens with a reprinted letter from the Lord Archbishop of Dublin, Paul Cullen, addressed to Margaret Aylward remarking on their great work of the Ladies’ Association of Charity and St. Brigid’s Orphanage. The report details the number of orphans; reunification of orphans with parents; orphan adoptions; orphan apprenticeships; the schooling of orphans; and the rearing of orphans. Examples of orphan circumstances are depicted, alongside parent testimonies. It describes support and donations for the cause; noting the support of clergymen and several guild associations. The boarding-out (foster care) system is described; and premiums paid to nurses (foster parents) is discussed. Protocols for religious instruction and education in general is detailed. The need for Catholic schools is emphasised; and discusses the foundation of St. Brigid Schools. It notes indulgences granted by Pope Pius IX. The report examines Proselytism with mention of some Protestant institutions (orphanages, schools, etc.), under the heading of ‘Danger to Faith.’ Several speeches and resolutions from the annual meeting are printed in the report. A list of benefactors and donations to St. Brigid’s Orphanage is listed (including clergymen and guild associations). In the appendix is a letter of solicitation for support, donations and subscriptions.
