PLEASE COME FOR OUR ANNUAL GATHERING!
We had a meeting some time back that was supposed to be an annual thing. (Oops!) So now we are setting a precedent (Here's hoping!) by attaching it to the feast day of St. Bridget. We couldn't manage it ON her feast day, so FEBRUARY 11 will do! Won't you join us for mass at 5 pm and stay for a conversation about what matters to YOU in liturgy, community and social awareness? If you work it right, there will even be some good things to eat!
COME ON DOWN!
Thank you for your prayers and support for the Women's March Saturday, January 21, both in Washington, DC, and Cleveland and other cities across the country and around the world!
Women's rights are human rights.
Here’s the information about the Women’s March in Cleveland:

On January 21, 2017 we will unite
for the Women's March on Washington
We stand together in solidarity with our partners and children for the protection of our rights, our safety, our health, and our families -- recognizing that our vibrant and diverse communities are the strength of our country.
Because women's rights are human rights
The rhetoric of the past election cycle has insulted, demonized, and threatened many of us--immigrants of all statuses, Muslims and those of diverse religious faiths, people who identify as LGBTQIA, Native people, Black and Brown people, people with disabilities, survivors of sexual assault—and our communities are hurting and scared. We are confronted with the question of how to move forward in the face of national and international concern and fear.
In the spirit of democracy and honoring the champions of human rights, dignity, and justice who have come before us, we join in diversity to show our presence in numbers too great to ignore. The Women’s March on Washington will send a bold message to our new administration on their first day in office, and to the world that women's rights are human rights. We stand together, recognizing that defending the most marginalized among us is defending all of us.
We support the advocacy and resistance movements that reflect our multiple and intersecting identities. We call on all defenders of human rights to join us. This march is the first step towards unifying our communities, grounded in new relationships, to create change from the grassroots level up. We will not rest until women have parity and equity at all levels of leadership in society. We work peacefully while recognizing there is no true peace without justice and equity for all.
