I hope this colder weather has not been too severe on Irish bones! It is difficult to think that we should be saying “Anois teacht an Earraigh” (Voici le Printemps/Spring now comes) with these sub-zero winds!
However, that is what we shall be proud to say on Sunday as we remember St Brigid of Kildare, second patron of Ireland. Through the kindness of one of the community, we have a good stock of croiseoig (St Brigid’s Crosses), straight from Kildare. We hope also to have a community lunch after the celebration.
Once again I invite you to join us here in the College for this special day. Those of you who can bring something to share for the lunch can leave it in the Salle de Conference before Mass. Both savoury and sweet are welcome and we will be providing bread and cheese, so there will be no need to bring these.
Mass is at 11h30 and we will particularly honour our religious sisters who will join us and who continue the tradition of Naomh Brid!
