St Brigid's Day 2024
The pupils made St Brigid's crosses in all the classrooms in preparation for St Brigid's Day on the 1st of February. We remember her kindness to others and helping the sick. Thank you to Fr Corrigan for blessing our crosses.
Brigid wove a cross of rushes by a dying chieftain's bed"
"Brigid what is that you're making
From the rushes there?", he said.
Brigid said,"A cross I'm weaving, like the cross where Jesus died."
"Who was Jesus?" asked the chieftain,
"Why was this man crucified?"
Brigid told the gospel story to a dying pagan King.
Lying silently he listened,
Never saying anything.
Then he kissed the cross of rushes
Saying ,"Brigid, thanks to you,
I have come to love this Jesus,
I will follow his way too!"
