Let’s Have Dinner and Talk About Death

November 15, 2018
Immke Room in Hendricks Hall
6:00 – 8:30 PM
RSVP by October 15, 2018
This might be the most unusual dinner invitation I have ever sent, but bear with me, I think we are in for a remarkable experience.  I would be honored if you would take the time to join Msgr. Hendricks, attorney Michael Zaino, a physician, and me for dinner and to engage in this conversation. They will offer a few words that will hopefully prompt us into some important conversations.  We will explore the Catholic view of dying and death, options for the end of life care, and advanced directives according to the State of Ohio.
Talking about death and dying can be uncomfortable and difficult, yet perhaps no conversations are more profound or necessary for all of us. End-of-life decisions are among the most challenging we will ever face. This is not meant to be a morbid conversation, but instead a very human one where we consider what we want, both in life and during its end and look at it in the context of our faith and values.
Register online here or call the Parish Office. Each participant must complete a registration form.  Online registration begins October 1 at 9 AM and ends October 14 at midnight. Space is limited to 64 people so don’t delay in registering.
Sr. Teresa Tuite O.P.

NEW Parish Group – CREW

By | Uncategorized | No Comments


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!
