Sacred Journey of The Oak
Light A Candle |
One of Daniel Delany’s greatest gifts to us may have been our name, Sisters of St. Brigid.
In gifting us with the name and the inspiration of this 5th Century Celtic woman.
Daniel gave us a patroness and model, a woman of strength and gentleness, a lover of the earth, a
reconciler and liberator of people – a woman with a compassionate heart like Daniel himself.
In today’s modern world we have been called to share the food of life, to respect others, to see the earth’s resources given
for the good of all and to develop a spirituality of justice for Brigidines.
Our Common Projects across the Congregation include the following:
- to focus on displaced persons (an inclusive term) at a personal , local and international level.
