Since Alexian Brothers AIDS Ministry opened in 1989, its spiritual care team has been key in carrying out the Alexian Brothers mission of transform the lives of people with HIV/AIDS within a compassionate, supportive community. The spiritual care team is made up entirely of volunteers. Bridget Purdome provides spiritual care to the residents of The Harbor and leads prayer services at Bonaventure House.
Bridget wrote a reflection about World AIDS Day 2011: Stand Against Stigma. The reflection refers to a segment of the event in which several individuals from the community spoke to their experience with HIV and stigma. Bridget’s reflection highlights the themes of each speaker’s story.
