From Humble Beginnings
On May 25, 1987, the Diocese of Columbus acquired 15 acres of land at 7179 Avery Road for $292,000. At that point, the land was used by the Dublin Stables as a horse boarding and riding facility. On the property was a farm house, large barn and stable.
The Diocese established new parish boundaries, and Bishop James A. Griffin sent a letter to each family in those boundaries “to inform (them) of the establishment of the the new Parish of Saint Brigid of Kildare and welcome (them) as a charter member.” The letter also announced Msgr. Paul Enke as the founding pastor.
Thirty years later after multiple renovations, new construction and expansions, our parish is home to over 3,200 families who worship, volunteer, and educate their children here. Thank you to each and every one of you who has made this parish the thriving home and community it has become.
