Queen's Birthday Honour - June 2007

Among the names on this year’s Honours List was Sr Paula Brettkelly, who was awarded membership in the New Zealand Order of Merit.  Paula’s award recognises her work with the Human Rights Commission and on the Board of the NZ Aids Foundation. 
In Paula’s words: “Every Christian is both challenged and called by the Gospel, because if there was one thing that the Christ of the Gospel stood for, it was for the dignity of every individual and the right of every individual to an equal place both in relation to God and in relation to each other.”
Paula is still involved in active lobbying and collaboration in issues which are at the heart of the Sisters of St Joseph mission of ‘Fullness of life for the Earth and its Peoples.’
