Sr Ruth Bridget Montrichard is a Sister of St Joseph of Cluny since 1968. She was born in Trinidad, on October 8, 1941 and is a teacher by profession. She enjoyed a rewarding teaching career that spanned over 15 years until she had an encounter that would change the trajectory of her life.
In 1974, Sr Ruth decided to do voluntary work organising the library with a fledging organisation called Servol Trinidad and Tobago (Service Volunteered for All), a non-governmental organisation (NGO) which focuses on the education and self-development of at-risk children, adolescents, adults and communities through the teaching of job and life skills.
Sr Ruth inevitably succumbed and ended up devoting her life to the organisation. If as in Sr Ruth’s own words, the Cluny congregation was the source of her education and formation, then Servol certainly provided fertile ground for the manifestation of her care for others. Sr Ruth has been working with Servol now for 42 years.
