Embracing our role in the one community of life… (Invitation & Call 2022)
Brigid, Earth Woman
‘Brigid, in keeping with her Celtic tradition, was wonderfully attuned to the seasons and cycles of nature. She valued the elements of nature: earth, air, fire and water.’ (Source: Brigidine.org)
Brigidines celebrate the Season of Creation 2023 , a time of focus on creation as Gift and on Earth as our common home.
The theme, Let Justice and Peace Flow, calls us to join the river of justice and peace – to take up climate and ecological justice, to speak out with and for communities most impacted by climate injustice and the loss of biodiversity.
During the 2nd week of Season of Creation,
Solas Bhride Centre begins the
Solas Bhride Season of Creation Meditation Series on Thursday 14th September 7.30 – 8.15 pm IST
Through the Congregation Project commitment, Brigidines support the Pacific Calling Partnership (PCP) in listening to and supporting Pacific Islander communities to advocate for climate action and climate justice. Another opportunity during the 2nd week of the Season of Creation, is the Webinar offered by the PCP with Edmund Rice Centre:
Webinar – Pacific civil society leading
