In order to fairly accommodate all Mass Intentions requested, we ask that you request no more than two (2) Mass intentions per family per quarter and only one Mass intention per month.

Church Updates – May 17, 2021

By | Uncategorized | No Comments
As our state and country begin to move back to normal, the Catholic Conference of Ohio has announced that the dispensation from the obligation to attend Holy Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation will be lifted beginning the weekend of June 5-6, 2021. Please click here to read the details of their letter.
Beginning May 22-23, we will begin moving our church building back to full capacity, with seating in every pew. We will keep a reserved section on the baptismal font side of the church for those that wish to maintain social distancing. We will also continue our livestream of Masses for those who do not feel comfortable worshipping in person.
We will also begin phasing back in lectors and eucharistic ministers, as well as congregational singing.
Bishop Brennan has asked us to continue to observe precautions including restricting the Sign of Peace, Holy Water in the fonts, and the distribution of the Precious Blood at Mass.
We will continue to follow all state guidelines regarding masking until they expire on June 2, 2021.
Thank you for your continued patience, support, care, and concern during this pandemic. We will continue to pray for those affected by the coronavirus.
Sincerely in Christ,
Monsignor Hendricks

Our protocols that will remain unchanged include:
  • Mass times remain the same (M-F 9:00 AM, Sat 5:00 PM, Sun 9:00 AM and 11:00 AM).
  • Masks are required to be worn at all times in the church.
  • Communion will be offered at the conclusion of Mass, as you exit the building.
  • The chapel and cry room remain closed (due to recommendations based on their ventilation systems and size).
  • Hand sanitizing stations are available upon entering the church (please use when you enter the church).
  • The church is cleaned daily following CDC guidelines.
  • Please do not enter any of the parish buildings if you are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19.

We continue to constantly assess all of our protocols and take guidance from public health experts, local government, the Diocese of Columbus, as well as our own task force planning committee.
We appreciate your continued support and prayers as we work to provide the safest environment for our community. Please continue to keep those affected by this virus in innumerable ways in your prayers.
Sincerely in Christ,
Rev. Msgr. Joseph M. Hendricks

Bishop’s Annual Appeal 2021

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

We kicked off the 2021 Bishop’s Annual Appeal April 24, 2021. The theme of the Bishop’s Annual Appeal is “Living the Joy of the Gospel,” which inspires us, as people of faith, to share joyfully the Good News of Christ to those who most need to feel His love as we continue His work on earth as faithful disciples.

Our parish’s participation in the BAA shows that we belong to the greater Church – not just our own parish, but in communion with our brothers and sisters in parishes across the Diocese of Columbus.

This year our parish share of the Appeal is $296,000. I know if we come together as a parish, we can achieve this goal. St. Brigid of Kildare Parish is able to keep any funds that exceed our goal.

We are encouraging you to consider supporting our parish goal by using the link below to make a secure pledge or gift:
