Fifteen hundred years ago, Saint Brendan of Ireland and a group of brave monks set sail in a small boat to seek “Heaven on Earth.” Throughout their fantastic journey, Brendan and his friends relied on their faith and each other to overcome numerous obstacles and course corrections.

Brendan never reached his intended physical destination but realized he had already glimpsed heaven on earth through his trials, joys, and the natural wonders he encountered. Brendan’s voyage was his path to God and symbolizes a deeper meaning for us all.

Saint Brendan’s example teaches us that we’re all on a voyage of faith. When we hold together, Jesus Christ will see us through life’s storms and to the calm shores of His eternal salvation.

Are you a seeker, someone moving into our area, or someone who has been away?


Regardless of where you find yourself on your voyage, the faith community of Saint Brendan The Navigator welcomes you home to Christ’s Catholic Church.
