Greetings from Chernobyl Children International

In a letter for St Brigid’s Day to Rita Minehan CSB and all at Solas Bhride in Kildare, Adi Roche, from the Voluntary CEO Chernobyl Children International sent greetings for St Brigid’s Day on 1st February and wrote:

“I have been invited by the Irish Ambassador to the Holy See Ambassador HE Derek Hannon (Irish Ambassador to the Holy See) to speak on behalf of the Embassy’s St Brigid’s Day celebrations. I am both honoured and privileged by this invitation to this event which will honour your patroness – Brigid. The event will be in the Church of St Isidore’s (Irish Franciscans) and will be attended by religious leaders, diplomats and the Irish diaspora. I have been greatly influenced by St Brigid’s story throughout my own lifetime and there have been many times where St Brigid’s story has strengthened my own Catholic faith.”
