Mass at Fairfield University for St. Patrick with Irish Gaelic
Friday, March 10 Mass Celebrating Irish Faith and Culture
Egan Chapel of St. Ignatius Loyola
Because the Feast of St. Patrick falls during spring break, we will acknowledge him on Friday, March 10th, during the Lenten Weekday Mass at 12:10 PM in the Egan Chapel. The liturgy will include several readings and prayers in Irish Gaelic. The Mass is open to everyone and all members of the community are invited to attend this celebration of Irish faith and culture in honor of St. Patrick the patron saint of Ireland. The Mass and the reception following is being hosted by the Irish Studies Program here at Fairfield University.
The Irish Gaelic Circle is dedicated to teaching and promoting the Irish Language in the Western CT / Hudson Valley NY area in particular and in North America in general.
Classes at the Beginner level meet weekly on Saturday mornings at the GDICC. Intermediate classes meet weekly via Zoom. There are Fall and Spring Semesters each year and there are summer classes also. The classes are taught in a friendly atmosphere with the emphasis on being able to communicate in Irish. Attendance at classes can also be done online via Zoom.
Private students and other classes for home schools, senior centers and community centers with different times and locations can be put together by arrangement.
One day Irish language programs for Festivals and events around the country can be arranged.
We have access to enjoyable single day and weekend Irish Language events in the tri-state area for those who want to take advantage of these opportunities to improve their fluency.
ESTABLISHING IRISH LANGUAGE PROGRAMS
For those areas where there are no teachers available but there is a group of interested learners, I can provide training and a program to follow for new teachers. Please contact me for details.
