The first part of the booklet opens with a request for support and donations for St. Brigid’s Orphanage. It notes that the orphanage was founded ‘for the purpose of rescuing Catholic Orphans and destitute children from the Proselytizers’. It mentions the indulgences granted by Pope Pius IX, Pope Leo XIII, and Pope Pius X. Examples of orphan circumstances are depicted. The document discusses the work of St. Brigid’s Orphanage, the boarding-out (foster care) system and the nurses (foster parents) living in the countryside. Protocols for religious instruction and education in general is detailed. The second part of the booklet, is a reprint of the Annual Charity Sermon by Rev. Thomas Maher, S.J.
