St. Brigid’s Day Celebrations with Pádraigín Clancy & Dennis Doyle

In the Footsteps of St. Brigid: Gaelic S/Hero & Holy Woman

The Feast of Brigid marks the start of the Celtic first day of spring. A primordial divine feminine, ancient as the hills and wells of Ireland, Brigid represents an enduring tradition.  Reflections, songs, prayers and stories helped us celebrate this central patron of Ireland and draw on her wisdom for our lives today.

In the Footsteps of Our Ancestors: Wisdom & Prayer from the Celtic Tradition

In the early years of the third millennium, there is a renewed turning towards Celtic spirituality—a thirst for a return to the well of Celtic wisdom. Participants celebrated a revitalization of our faith and spiritual wholeness through the Celtic tradition of journeying to the sacred holy well. We fed our intellects and souls on themes and stories of justice and healing and generosity and wisdom.

Irish Music & Dancing and Lots of Celtic Craic!

Musicians and KAIROS ALIVE! artists, in collaboration with Brigid McDonald, CSJ, and area high school students, will tell the story of “Brigid’s Coat” in story, dance, and music.
