Sixmilebridge Twinning – a group of 10 officials from Nort-sur-Erdre in western France arrived on Wednesday for a 4 day exploratory visit of the area and are staying with host families in the parish.
They have been treated to a flavour of our Irish hospitality and have been discovering the many and varied aspects which this area has to offer.
Their visit culminates with a dinner & a social evening at the rear of the Cosy Cottage on this Saturday 18th April and anyone who would like to meet them are more than welcome to drop in.
Check out sixmilebridgetwinning on Facebook for a flavour of their visit.
What Story ?
The Celtic Story
The Story of a people and a place,
The Meaning to Life Story,
The Living Past Story,
The Christian Story,
The May Eve Story,
The Land + Animals Story.
More and more young people are interested in the stories
their parents and especially their Grandparents tell them
of their times growing up.
Why is it important? Because connecting with a people
and a time from the past can help us to live and value the
present and shape our future.
There are valuable lessons for us from times when
Self/Community Reliance, Neighbours, Healthy Home
Produced Food and Manual Work; Family, Faith were
important concepts – a time when Celtic Spirituality
integrated the real life of people.
We are living in a very different Ireland now. Education,
Travel, Television, Technology, Prosperity have
brought great changes – a lot of them positive.
There is a greater emphasis on personal freedom and a
more tolerant approach to life.
But there is a downside too – a loss of ordinary decency,
a greed for money and prosperity,
the decline of community and neighbourliness,
a loss of respect for the wisdom of old.
The challenge now is: to place our lives in the context of
values that apply to people in every age.
Our May Eve Gathering is a bit about responding to that
