Ireland’s Consul General Vancouver Cathy Geagan Welcomes The Brigidine Sisters of Kildare
THIS IS AN ONLINE EVENT.
When St. Brigid built her monastery and church in Kildare town, she kept a sacred fire burning from pre-Christian times invoking a goddess named Brigid. For centuries the nuns in Kildare tended the flame before it was extinguished in the sixteenth century. The fire was re-lit at a ceremony in Kildare Market Square in 1993 and the Brigidine Sisters continue to tend the flame in their centre, Solas Bhríde while sharing the values and legacy of St. Brigid.
Brigid Festival Vancouver is a volunteer led event and admission to all events are free. Donations to the Irish Benevolent Society are appreciated and can be made by direct e-transfer to: email@example.com
We acknowledge that this event is hosted on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territories of many different Indigenous communities stretching across this beautiful land we now call home.
