The event begins with a craft workshop for children, who will learn to make a St. Brigid's cross, and discover the history of Saint Brigid, who lived in the 5th century and is known as The Mary of the Gael.

At 5:00 p.m. Father John McCarthy will celebrate Mass at St. Brendan's Church, and that is followed at 6:00 p.m. by supper and traditional Irish music and dancing. Musicians will be performing from Comhaltas Ceoltoiri Eireann and Céol Trad.na hEiréann
