Compass - Brigidine House - A Journey
Since the arrival of the first missionaries in Australia, religious orders have played a vital role in the health care and the education of an emerging nation.
But today many convents are facing uncertain futures; their nuns are ageing and religious orders are struggling to find new recruits.
They're facing tough questions about their future and even tougher practical questions about the institutions they call home. In this program we follow one convent that has tackled these problems head on. Their solutions are bold and not everyone is happy with them, but if successful they could lead the way for convents across the country.
