Description

Fiftieth Annual Report of St. Brigid’s Orphanage (1907). It is submitted by the Sisters of the Holy Faith. The report details the number of orphans; reunification of orphans with parents; orphan adoptions; orphan apprenticeships; the schooling of orphans; ‘The acquisition of secular knowledge is necessary but holds a secondary place'; and the rearing of orphans. Case histories are detailed. It notes that admissions were mostly for children in danger of losing their Catholic Faith. Proselytism is mentioned throughout. Examples of orphan circumstances are depicted. Protocols for religious instruction and education in general is detailed. The benefits of the boarding-out (foster care) system is discussed. It explains how Holy Faith Schools are not in receipt of state aid. It provides statistics on attendance; and of children who completed First Communion, and Confirmation. It accounts for the number of children in attendance at Holy Faith schools who had previously been in Protestant schools. A list of benefactors and donations to St. Brigid’s Orphanage and Holy Faith Schools is listed (including clergymen and guild associations). Two Charity Sermons are reprinted. One by Fr Lynch and St. Brigid’s celebrating its golden jubilee and one from Fr Albert Keane, O.D.C. In the appendix is a letter of solicitation for support, donations, and subscriptions, including donations by the guardians of the North Dublin Union. Also, in the appendix is a description of assistance of the Sisters of the Holy Faith to the Society of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Queen Of Charity, in Little Strand Street; and an extract of a pamphlet published by his Lordship the Bishop of Southwark and kindly presented to St. Brigid’s Orphanage, titled ‘Practical Direction and Suggestions as to Appointed Testamentary Guardian.’
