Porch Window - Saint Brendan

Gift of John L. and Patrick J. Conners

Saint Brendan is the Patron Saint of Sailers and Travellers. Ironic when one looks at the dry land surrounding the church building with not a sailer in sight! St Brendan's Church at Mt Bryan was built when the town was a growing rural area of mainly sheep and crop farmers. The Jesuits from Sevenhill established the congregation in 1886 and it was  completed by 1926.  

Saint Brendan was born in Ireland and made so many voyages around the British Isles that he became known as Saint Brendan the Voyager.  He established many abbeys and monasteries including the abbey at Clonfert where he was buried in 577.
