The True Irish Traditions: Celtic Spirituality and the Irish Influence in America

Presented by Sr. Peggy Murphy, OP

American life and culture have been deeply influenced by the traditions and experience of Irish immigrants. Parochial education, in particular, has been shaped by the values of Celtic spirituality, a richly imaginative first millennium expression of the Christian message. It is a world view that emphasizes the nearness of God and the sacredness of ordinary life. It is a vision that can renew the Christian journey.

In “The True Irish Traditions,” Sr. Peggy will explore the rich legacy of Celtic spirituality in word image, and song. Please join us for a lyrical presentation that reveals the vitality of these beliefs for contemporary Christian life.

 Sr. Peggy Murphy, O.P., has served on the faculty at Mount Saint Mary College since 1996. Her parents emigrated from Ireland to New York City, where she was born and raised. Sr. Peggy preserves her own Irish heritage through her membership in the Ladies’ Ancient Order of Hibernians in Middletown, NY, where she serves as Chaplain. She counts as her greatest treasures her joyful faith, family, and friends.

Sr. Peggy holds a Ph.D. in Christian Spirituality from Drew University, a master’s degree in social work from Yeshiva University, and an M.S. in pastoral counseling from Iona College.
