The Brotherhood has produced two books that celebrate the courage of our clients and the inspiration we draw from them. These two publications – Brotherhood: Stories of Courage and Resilience and its accompanying workbook – give readers an insight into the experience of poverty in Australia and activities for reflection on the stories shared.
Brotherhood: Stories of Courage and Resilience
Brotherhood is a compelling collection of stories and photos about the lives of 29 Brotherhood clients. Written by Fr Jeff O'Hare, the Brotherhood's Chaplain, and illustrated with photos by renowned photographer, Peter McConchie, these compelling stories will move and inspire you.
