Seat Dedication - February 2009

A group of people gathered on Mt Victoria in Wellington on Sunday February 1st to dedicate a seat at Plimmer Park in honour of Sister Paula Brettkelly.  This had been organized by the Aids Foundation, who were joined by members of Paula’s own family, Sisters of St Joseph and her friends.

Informal sharing of memories of Paula and her dreams for human rights from some of those present, and the singing of a blessing completed the short time together, while some stayed to picnic. 

It seemed fitting that the seat is placed in a clearing with clear views of the city where Paula lived and worked, and near a grove of trees planted in memory of those who died of Aids.
