Pause for Peace

Feb 01, 2024 12:00 pm - 12:01 pm

Join us in a global Pause for Peace. Time: 12.00 local time - St. Brigid’s day, February 1st.

The Pause for Peace movement invites people from around the world to stop and pause for 1 minute’s silence/reflection at 12 o’clock local time on St. Brigid’s day, February 1st.

The global Pause for Peace movement was Launched jointly by Solas Bhride Centre and Into Kildare – Kildare Tourism Board, at Solas Bhride Centre on January 12th 2023.


“By pausing for peace, we send out a message that we actively oppose warfare and the proliferation of arms, which wreak havoc on human beings as well as on the natural world. This movement aims to awaken and build a spirit of global solidarity in our search for peace. It would be a fitting tribute to Saint Brigid and to all our ancestors if it were marked with a Pause for Peace on her feast-day, February 1st each year.”

Rita Minehan csb at the Launch of the Pause for Peace Movement in January 2023.

“This new Pause for Peace movement is a unique event which breaks new ground in recognising the cultural and historical importance of St. Brigid beyond boundaries and aims to form a spirit of solidarity and peace in societies all over the globe.” 

President Michael D. Higgin, February 2023
