World Day of Prayer for Women's ordination 2016 - celebrated at SAINT BRIGID'S WELL in KILDARE on the Feast of the Annunciation (4 April 2016). A glorious sunset, hymns and prayers, readings and a blood red sermon (given most appropriately by a woman) on Luke's gospel on the woman who suffered haemorrhages for 12 years! St Brigid was the first woman bishop, but certainly not the last! May she bless our church and move it towards a Christian church with full equality for women!
