NEW BOOK BY KATE FITZPATRICK MACHA’S TWINS

Published June 2017, this book is both a personal story and a journey of insight into the power of myth for contemporary spirituality.

Macha is the Irish Horse Goddess and her story is both powerful and tragic.

Will her curse on the men of Ulster finally be lifted and will we see healing and regeneration in Ireland and throughout the world?

The book explores the power of the Sacred Feminine and invites us to take a journey with Macha, and see where it leads us.

The book can be ordered by contacting Kate’s facebook page:

DATES FOR MONTHLY CELTIC PRAYER IN THE OLD CATHEDRAL 2017

What is Celtic Prayer?

Celtic Prayer, like Celtic Spirituality, is very nature focused. So there are references to seasons of the year, the sun and moon, the ocean and the land, the birds, fish and animals and the Sacred Presence in everthing.

During Celtic Prayer there is an order of service (liturgy) to follow easily and there is also suitable music.

Celtic Prayer takes place monthly on the first Wednesday of each month at 12.30p.m. in the Ladychapel (behind the main altar) of the old Cathedral (Church of Ireland or Anglican) in Armagh.

 EVERYONE IS WELCOME.

A Caim (Encircling) Prayer.

Circle us with peace – keep light and love within, keep danger without.

Circle us through this day – keep childlike trust within, keep fear without.

Circle us this night – keep health and peace within, keep dis-ease without.

Deep peace of the quiet earth, deep peace of the flowing air, deep peace of the ocean’s depth, deep peace of the God of peace. Amen.
