We Are Keepers of the Sacred Flame...
Ord Brighideach, (translated in English as the Order of Brighid), is a Brighidtine Order of Flame Keepers and Water Tenders engaging in devotional work to Brighid. We are a non-denominational religious Order; all are welcome whom Brighid calls, regardless of gender, religion/faith, ethnicity, ability/disability. Brighid welcomes us all beneath her mantle, so we must always be welcoming to one another.
She is the healing well and the purging flame, she is the protector of the Earth and its innocents, children, and animals.
She is known by many names across time and in many cultures:
St. Brigit, Brighid, Brid, Bride, Briga, Brigid, Bridgid, Briginda, Brigdu, Brigittina, Brigantia, Maman Brigitte.
We of Ord Brighideach have heard and have answered Her call; our members continue Brighid's work in our time. We are committed to carrying out Brighid's work in this world in the manner in which we have been called, or, if we have not yet been called, in a manner in which we feel will serve her.
If she speaks to you - as poet, healer, smith, storyteller, musician, craftsperson, midwife, mother, hearth keeper, land steward, tender of herds, seer, woman of fire, lawgiver, deity of the home, lady of the sun, or simply as saint or goddess - you are welcome to walk among us.
