ABOUT PARISH/ SCHOOL/ ORGANIZATION

Saint Bridget Parish: a vibrant, faith-filled, and loving community of 2,000 Roman Catholic families. We worship, live, love, and serve together, keeping the Holy Trinity at our center. We know and attest that Jesus Christ is truly present in the Eucharistic. We submit that He graces all that we do and accomplish in His name!
We are most blessed by the charism of an abundance of children at Saint Bridget Parish. As Christ called the children to Him, we are directed by the gospel to believe as children believe. We embrace this gift and rejoice in the responsibility and honor of raising each of our children to be strong in their faith and enveloped in the love of their church, family, and community. We revel in our mission to guide the faith formation of each child at Saint Bridget Catholic School and every family at Saint Bridget Church.
We are a parish of many generations – from the newborn to the very founders of our parish; we offer our loving embrace to our parishioners of all ages. We worship together as one family in liturgies that are reverent and inspiring, glorified by the uplifting song of our choirs and accompanied by a most beautiful pipe organ.
We learn together in Bible studies and faith formation programs; we serve together in aiding others in need throughout our community; we join together in parish events and meals; we gather together as we welcome new parishioners in baptism and RCIA; and we celebrate those that have joined our Lord in their resurrection. Truly, our parish offers something for everyone, and provides the one thing we all need: Christ in our life.
Come join us at the table of our Lord at Saint Bridget Parish, where we praise God together for His gifts to us of faith, family, and children, and give thanks to Him for the many blessings He bestows on us as a people and a parish of faith!
