St. Brigid of Kildare
One-Week Online Retreat
Monday - Friday (Full-days)
9am-4pm Mountain Time
St. Brigid is one of the three patron saints of Ireland credited with spreading Christianity in the Celtic Isles. Many of the details of her life are more legend than fact, but her life and spirituality left a mark on the Celtic people that is real and robust.
Brigid was born into slavery, but like many women in the Middle Ages found freedom in the Church. She followed the teachings of St. Patrick and founded several important monasteries, most notably in Kildare. She was known for her excessive generosity to the sick and poor. Named after the pagan goddess of the flame, Brigid's life became a bright light to the people around her, which continues to shine to this day.
Class will be conducted live on Zoom. Recordings of each session will be made available for participants via Google Classroom.
