The Old Schoolhouse at Ballycranbeg was the setting on the evening of Wednesday 29th January for our Annual Rush Party to meet and make St Brigid’s Crosses for the Parish.
A couple of hours flew by with plenty of busy fingers making good use of the rushes, elastic bands and scissors to make the crosses. During the evening time was taken for a very welcome supper provided by the Parish Social Committee.
The Crosses were blessed by Fr Alexander at the Saturday morning 9am Mass in St Joseph’s, which was the Feast Day of St Brigid, 1st February.
On Sunday 2nd February, Candlemas Day, at the 9am Mass in St Mary Star of the Sea, Fr Alexander blessed candles for use in the home and for the altar.
