Feast of St. Brigid - Feb 1st

cartoon StBrigid

Our homeschool saint is Saint Brigid of Kildare, Ireland. Her feast day is February 1st. Here are some ideas we've found to celebrate on that day, or when celebrating Irish culture on St. Patrick's Day in March.

 

St Brigid, Mary of Ireland
Ask for us all today
The courage to do God's bidding
Whatever the world may say
The grace to be strong and valiant
The grace to be firm and true
The grace to be faithful always
To God, God's mother and you.

  1. Hi Melissa,

    I've never seen Saints Fun Facts before. Is that from a book or website?
