Family First

Family First is a ministry of St. Brigid of Kildare Parish that seeks to empower parents in their roles as leaders of the home/domestic church. Family First offers encouragement and insight into all stages of child development as well as marriage enrichment. We currently offer a weekly discussion group, with childcare available, have an email distribution list of support materials and sponsor special events such as family picnics and speakers which build fellowship among parishioners.

“The family has a special vocation to be a place where people are loved not for what they do or what they have – but simply because they are.”

“To Live in Christ Jesus,” Pastoral Letter of US Bishops
