La Féile Bhríde--AFRI-Style
Action From Ireland (AFRI) has long had a close association with the Brigidine sisters at Solas Bhride in Kildare. Of themselves they say "Afri engages in development education in a world in which the gap between rich and poor continues to widen and in which war, violence and militarism continue to wreak havoc on the lives of millions of people".
It isn't surprising then that their colourful and passionate celebration of Brigit's feast day has a somewhat different slant than many. Embedded below is the three-minute video from their post that describes that day, "Impressions from Afri’s Féile Bríde 2012". (See if you can spot Sr. Mary Minehan in the ceremonies.)
When you have read that post, noodle around to the homepage and have a look at some of the projects AFRI has on the go.
