Here is St. Brigid, sharing her pantry with all. The kids especially loved the part where she gave away her father's sword! After learning all about St. Brigid, the kids took turns shaking jars full of whipping cream to make butter...
And finally, for a bit of outdoor fun - they played with parachutes, kindly loaned from the local school and gymnastics facilities. They all had fun watching the parachutes stretch out across the ground, just like St. Brigid's cloak!
"Behold, the Lord will pass by, and before the Lord, a great and powerful wind will be rending the mountains and shattering the rocks; but the Lord will not be in the wind. After the wind, an earthquake, but the Lord will not be in the earthquake. After the earthquake, there will be a fire, but the Lord will not be in the fire. After the fire, there will be a sound of a gentle breeze, and the Lord will be there."
But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? Bid her therefore that she may help me. And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things: But one thing is needful; and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her. Luke 10:40-42
