Come, Holy Spirit!

Hello, friends! The buzz and excitement of the Wexford Opera Festival has been replaced with a sense of avid preparation – here in Clonard, we are focusing on preparation for Thanksgiving, Advent (!!!), Sacraments with the schools, and preparing Christmas music. With the school year in full swing, our time is getting quite filled with […]

“Moo”-re Ministry!

Last Friday, Teach Bhríde’s friend, Jim, took us out for a day trip to his brother-in-law’s farm, Cullenstown, and Kilmore Quay. What happens when you put four animal-deprived Americans on a farm for the morning? Chaos, squeals, screams of delight, etc., that’s what! My mom’s always said that children and animals seem to unnaturally flock […]

Sacrament Season

Where has the last month gone?  Between the Passion Play, Easter, and three out of four Wexford Teach Bhríde families visiting, I’m not really sure what happened to April. However, one thing has become quite evident since our return from the Easter holidays – it’s Sacrament Season! All of our First Communicants from Kennedy Park, […]

Questioning

Within about 20 seconds of meeting me, you will realize that I’m a pretty talkative person.  I love to chat. I get excited when I meet new people, and I tend to not stop doing this weird talky-show-dance combination when I get really excited.  So, it may be surprising to hear that I was a […]

A Time for Praying

It’s staggering to think that Teach Bhríde V’s year in Wexford is coming to a close.  In many ways, it feels like we just began.  So many of our “firsts” have recently become “lasts,” and we have already said our goodbyes to Mary.  While I know these aren’t “lasts” for me, as I’m returning to […]

To Have Seen Him

I can’t even begin to process all of the feels I’m feeling when it comes to the Resurrection Play.  This was such an incredible experience for me, not only as a House of Brigid volunteer, but also as a theatre artist looking to find her niche in the world.  Drama ministry is the phrase ringing […]

Sneak Peek!

Many of you may be wondering if there’s going to be another Passion Play this Easter, as initiated by Season IV’s Emily.  Well, I hate to break it to you, friends, but there will not be a Passion Play at Clonard this year… Instead, we will be putting on a Resurrection Play, to be organized […]

Sing Out!

An important ministry Teach Bhríde spearheaded back in Season I is music workshops.  We usually host about three a year – one at the diocesan level and two at the parish level.  Last weekend, Season V hosted their first parish-based workshop for a youth choir from the parish of Templetown/Poulfur.  Normally we would travel out […]
