This years St. Brigid’s day service led by the Kilkenny Gospel Choir will take place on Friday (February 1) in St Fiacre’s Church in Loughboy
at 8 pm.
This year’s service will in a special way remember all those whose lives have been touched by pain, depression and loss. The Kilkenny Gospel
Choir will lead the service and with songs and prayers remember all families who have been touched in different ways by problems and worries.
As usual holy water from the well of St. Brigid will be available as well as red flannel associated with the healing ministry of St. Brigid. All are
invited to bring their St. Brigid’s Crosses to be blessed or buy them on the night. ‘It’s not easy get red flannel anymore, this year the red flannel comes from Clonakilty where it was the last roll in the wool shop.
‘Every year hundreds of people attend the service and take the water and red flannel home with them invoking the protection of St. Brigid. It is said that St. Brigid’s cloak was made of red flannel and when she spread her cloak over the sick, the worried or the anxious they were healed.’ said Fr Willie Purcell who will lead the service.
‘At this difficult time in the lives of all people its important we are united in support of each other and what better way than to gather and pray for each other’ said Fr. Willie.
