House of Brigid

We say thank you and farewell to Geoff, Emma and Biz, who greatly enhanced our liturgies and enriched our parish life over the past year. May the Lord bless and guide them in their future decisions and paths.

As members of the House of Brigid, Geoff Burdell, Emma Fleming and Elizabeth (Biz) Honeywell were working in the parish from September to June. In particular, they directed the First Holy Communion and Confirmation preparation programmes, and helped with our music ministry.

The American outreach programme House of Brigid (Teach Bhríde) invites recent college graduates to serve the Church in Ireland, mainly through liturgical music ministry and youth catechesis, while also enjoying personal and spiritual growth. It stems from a spirit of gratitude to the missionaries of Ireland who brought the Catholic faith to America, an effort to strengthen in today’s Irish Catholics the faith that sustained their ancestors, and a desire to give young Americans the opportunity to immerse themselves in Irish culture and Celtic spirituality.

In June 2016, we said thank you and farewell to Geoff Burdell, Rikki Koebler and Susanna Floyd, from the University of Notre Dame; among their achievements was the visit of the Notre Dame Folk Choir.
