St Brigid’s Day in Killygarry

We celebrated St Brigid, our patron saint with a little prayer service in the school. Two of our Junior Infants started it off by knocking on the door, as is the tradition on St Brigid’s morning. They entered with the St Brigid’s cross and St Brigid’s mantle and everybody greeted them with “Welcome St Brigid and welcome the Spring”. Then we said prayers to St Brigid and listened to stories about her life. Fr Rafal blessed our St Brigid’s crosses with holy water before we went back  to class.
