St Brendan the Navigator

Source Wikipedia…Brendan is primarily renowned for his legendary journey to the Isle of the Blessed as described in the Navigatio Sancti Brendani Abbatis (Voyage of Saint Brendan the Abbot) of the ninth century. Many versions exist that narrate how he set out on the Atlantic Ocean with sixteen monks (although other versions record fourteen monks and three unbelievers who joined in the last minute) to search for the Garden of Eden. One of these companions is said to have been Malo.[12] The voyage is dated to AD 512–530, before his travel to the island of Great Britain. On his trip, Brendan is supposed to have seen Saint Brendan’s Island, a blessed island covered with vegetation. He also encountered a sea monster, an adventure he shared with his contemporary Columcille. The most commonly illustrated adventure is his landing on an island which turned out to be a giant sea monster named “Jasconius”.


The Archbishop has formed a committee to formulate a plan or vision for the future of the Diocese. This is an exciting opportunity for us to take part, but time is short…so please let’s all take part and support our Diocese.

His key question is “Where are we journeying as a Diocese in the coming decades?”

He would like to hear the voices of all concerned, clergy and laity alike.   We would like if you would share your ideas and vision for our future in writing by email to [email protected].  Deadline for receipt of submissions Thursday 13th May.  Thank you.
