A Passion for Justice and the Promotion of Human Rights

Pauline ColACRATH members mourn the loss of Good Samaritan Sister, Pauline Coll, co-founder of ACRATH.

Pauline, a true Good Samaritan woman, recognised the unmet needs of vulnerable people being trafficked into Australia, and determined to address these.  Pauline had a passion for justice and the promotion of human rights. She held a deep belief in collaborative action and brought her energetic commitment to the formation of Australian Catholic Religious Against Trafficking in Humans as its first chairperson. Pauline had a heart for those we serve and vision that drove strategic action to bring about change. ACRATH members have precious memories of Pauline’s enthusiasm and creativity which brought spirit and life to this work for justice.

ACRATH offers loving sympathy to the Sisters of the Good Samaritan on the loss of their grace-filled woman of the gospel, Pauline:

May she be embraced by God in whom
dawn and twilight are one and may
her longing inhabit its deepest dreams
within the shelter of the Great Belonging.
(
John O’Donohue)

    We never met but we were related through my grandfather. I was always so proud of Pauline, at what she had accomplished in her religious life and life in general. May she Rest In Peace now.

    To all the Good Samaritan Sisters and members of ACRATH.
    So very saddened to hear the news about Pauline.
    I have very happy and fond memories of the early days of ACRATH and of her wonderful spirit of enthusiasm, commitment and great humour. I am so glad I had the opportunity to meet and work with her. With love and prayers as you farewell a great woman.
    Love
