Our patron saint, St. Aidan of Northumbria focused on distributing to the poor royal gifts received from his king. He continuously extended invitations to the rich and poor by proclaiming the good news of the gospel. He continued to encourage both believers and non-believers to embrace the mystery of faith and to strengthen their faith with actions to alms and good works. Aidan’s mission changed the people of Northumbria. It is with his inspiration, and through the love and inspiration of Christ our Lord that we at St. Aidan’s join together and answer the call to respond and reach out to our community. Following are the various ways in which we embrace in relationship and journey beyond the table.
