New Bishop for the Diocese of Columbus

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

We have been notified that His Holiness Pope Francis has appointed the Most Reverend Robert J. Brennan, currently Auxiliary Bishop of the Diocese of Rockville Center, New York, as the 12th Bishop of Columbus.  He succeeds Bishop Frederick F. Campbell, whose resignation and retirement, has been accepted by the Holy Father.

 The following You Tube link is a great introduction to Bishop Brennan.  It was produced by the Diocese of Rockville Centre and is titled, “Sending Forth a Shepherd.”

Bishop Brennan will be installed as Bishop of Columbus during a Mass on Friday, March 29, 2019.  Pope Francis has appointed Bishop Campbell as Apostolic Administrator of the Diocese of Columbus, and he will continue to lead the Diocese until the Mass of Installation.

Please keep both Bishops in your prayers as they prepare for the transition.

CREW

Catholics Ready, Eager & Willing

CREW (which stands for Catholics Ready, Eager and Willing) is a new parish group! Throughout the year, there are many times that we could use your hands to help make a difference here at St. Brigid of Kildare.

This is not a committee with members and monthly meetings. This is not a year-round commitment.  CREW is just a list of parishioners who are ready, eager and willing to help around our campus and during special events.

Sign-up today to receive all the CREW requests via email, but only commit to those that appeal to you and fit in your schedule! You’ll meet new people, feel connected to our parish family and be the first to know that we aren’t too shy to ask for help!

Do you enjoy hosting guests? We could use you!
Would you be a pro at directing traffic? We need you!
Do you like to put furniture together? We’d love your help!
Do you have 30 minutes to spare? Maybe an hour? Maybe three? A sporadic schedule? No problem!
