Closing Gaps While Building Bridges of Faith

Sister Bernadette “Bernie” Barrett, SHSP, ministers in Lake Providence, Louisiana. Once dubbed the “poorest town in the country,” more than 40% of Lake Providence’s residents live below the poverty line. Passionate about social justice and powered by her faith, Sister Barrett devotes her considerable energy working across race, class, socio-economic standing and denominational lines for the betterment of the community. Her loving calls to action are slowly empowering downtrodden residents to play a role in rehabilitating their town. Sister Barrett’s involvement in various civic organizations and interfaith groups is a strong witness to the Church’s concern for the people of Lake Providence.
