St. Brigid's feast day is Feb. 1st. She was canonized on October 7th, 1391 by Boniface. Brigid is the patron saint of milkmaids,children, midwifes and Ireland. She founded a religious home for men and woman in Kildare, Ireland.
She is still remembered for her work in the church to this day. She is also known for her miracles like the miracle of the cloak. Brigid went to the king asking for land so she could build her monastery. The king said no and would not give her any land. Brigid asked him to give her as much land as her cloak could cover and he agreed thinking it would be useless. She then told the people with her to each grab a corner and walk in different directions. They cloak began to grow and spread to give her more than enough land to build her monastery.
