Feast of Saint Brigid
On February 1 we will observe the Feast of St Brigid, one of the principle patron saints of Ireland. We will have a service of communion at 6:30, followed by a pot luck meal – all are welcome!
Brigid (also Brigit, Bridget, or Bride) lived around the time of the 5th century, not long after the first Christian presence in Ireland. is known for her charity for the poor and her strong leadership through establishing several monasteries and convents in Ireland, one story telling that she even received episcopal orders.
