The Feast Day of St. Brigid, Abbess of Kildare

1 Feb

Matthew is of Irish descent, so when I learned that the Orthodox church celebrates the feast day of St. Brigid, abbess of Kildare, I was excited to celebrate. Irish saints are few and far between in the Orthodox church.   So, today I made Irish soda bread, which is lovely with strawberry preserves.

Let Adeline color an icon of St. Brigid that I found here.

And we listened to Jane G. Meyer’s book about St. Brigid be read by Dr. Chrissi Heart on Ancient Faith Radio.  Click here to listen to stories about the amazing life of St. Brigid.
