Lá Fhéile Pádraig

St Patrick by M.I. Rupnik SJ.

Sunday 17 March is the feast of St Patrick, our national apostle and patron.

A short celebration of the Saint in music and dance will take place in St Michael’s Church, Kildysart immediately after 11am Mass on the feast day.  Local performers will give us  a taste of Irish music on the accordion, fiddle and flute, set dancing, broom dancing and folk and traditional singing.

The congregation will be invited to make a donation which will be used to fund the maintenance and the enhancement of the local cemetery and Marian grotto.  

Christ with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me, Christ in me,
Christ beneath me, Christ above me,
Christ on my right, Christ on my left,
Christ in breadth, Christ in length, Christ in height,
Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of every man who speaks of me,
Christ in every eye that sees me,
Christ in every ear that hears me.

(Prayer in the traditon of St Patrick)
