St. Brigid of Kildare

New Members

“When we live our call to the full, we will set the world ablaze.”  (Catherine of Sienna)

Solas Bhride is exploring new ways of being a Brigidine in the twenty-first century.
We are looking at commitments at different levels:

  • Volunteering
  • Temporary commitment
  • Permanent commitment

“This is now. Now is all there is.  Don’t wait for then; strike the spark, light the fire.”

As Brigidines:

We nurture and deepen our contemplative spirit. We stand in reverence for the community of life.
We engage with the issues of the welfare of the planet, human trafficking and the plight of displaced persons at local and UN level.

Brigid lived the Christian message in a totally unique way in fifth century Ireland.  We, in Solas Bhride, are committed to unfolding Brigid’s legacy and its relevance in a creative and life-giving way in the 21st century.
