  Brigid's Bord 

Set by the charitable arms of

 The Celtic Christian Church

Brigid was known as the Irish Queen of Charity and under her patronage and with her prayerful assistance, we dedicate this service to all works of Charity.

Clothing & blankets are collected and then shared with the poor directly.

We collect for: women who are returning to the work force who need good clothing, as well as for the homeless (locally and in larger cities) who need warm coats, sweaters, socks, hats, scarves, blankets, and sleeping bags. 

We have begun collecting books for shut-ins and those in nursing homes as well.  Please don't toss those novels--or toss them our way.

The poor are all around us in this terrible financial crunch which has hit our world.  We might not see them in the streets, but they are everywhere.  As a result we are also collecting clothing for those who cannot afford their own, particularly the elderly, and those with small children whose needs change monthly as the children grow.

Prayer/Song:

"Mary of the Gaels"

Oh Mary of the Gaels,

Dear Abbess of Kildare!

Our Irish queen of charity,

Anamchara, ever fair!

We pray to you our Bride,

Be with us as our guide,

And if our Faith should falter,

Be here Brigid at our side.

Help us always to remember

The poor we may not see,

And keep us ever mindful

Of the gift that we may be.

Be our soul-friend ever faithful,

That we may not depart

From faith in Christ, just as you taught

From your own faithful heart.

Oh keep us ever mindful

Of this heritage we share

Of our Celtic Faith in God most Hight

Dear Brigid of Kildare.

Be our soul-friend ever faithful

That we may not depart,

From Faith in Christ, just as you taught

From your own faithful heart.

Dear Brigid walk among us

As the friend you've always been

And help us to renew our Faith

And turn away from sin.

Let us not be troubled

Or left swaying like a reed

But return to our Celtic roots

And the Faith that is our creed!
