As part of  our celebration of Catholic schools week, we wish to invite adults/ grandparents to the school on Thursday 31st Jan from 11.30 – 12.30 to assist us with making St. Bridget’s crosses. Grandparents play a very important role in the lives of  their grandchildren in handing on the faith. We would be delighted to see as many adults from the community as possible with us on Thursday to help celebrate our faith .

St. Brigid’s cross symbolises the beginning of Spring. In Ireland the official beginning of Spring is February 1st.

These crosses are hung by doors to protect houses from Fire and Evil.

St.Brigid one of the few female saints! She is also commonly known as Bridey. St. Brigid was born near Dundalk in 453ad and was important in spreading Christianity in Ireland.

Whilst her father was ill, she was sat by him and to pass the time she gathered rushes and started making these crosses. That is why today we call them St. Brigid’s crosses! St. Brigid died on February 1st and that is how we remember it today!

We had a busy morning watching and feeding the birds. We spotted the the Robin and Blue tit feeding on the seeds we left out for them.Birds appreciate being fed throughout the year, but winter is their most difficult time, when they find it hard to find their natural food, such as insects, worms, berries and seeds. Luckily, most birds take readily to a variety of food items that we can easily provide and this helps them to survive the cold winter months.
