On Saturday, February 2nd, we will celebrate the Feast Day of St. Brigid and the Feast Day of the Presentation of our Lord (Candlemas) with a Contemplative Eucharist. Each of these feast days celebrates the coming of light back into our world, from the darkness of the winter months, with the Christian understanding that Christ is now the light of the world and that is to be celebrated and lived.
On January 27th, we will gather after each service to make St. Brigid crosses, which she used as a mark of someone who had converted to Christianity. St. Brigid is an Irish saint who is considered the abbess and patroness of Ireland and is credited with the founding of the first Irish monastery in County Kildare, Ireland.
Also that day, we will host a YMME (Youth Mini-Mission Event) as we build Bluebird Houses to be placed outside in February. Both of these are a sign of the coming spring and light and new life in our world. No need to sign up—just come and be a part of the activities.
