Family First

Family First is a ministry of St. Brigid of Kildare Parish that seeks to empower parents in their roles as leaders in the home/domestic church. Family First offers insight into all stages of child development and Catholic parenting as well as marriage enrichment. We support the faithful living out of the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony as well and seek to encourage families to recognize family life as a true ministry.

Family First currently offers: “Mom to Mom,” a weekly Catholic parenting discussion group, “Make it a Date,” an opportunity to socialize with other married couples after the Saturday evening Mass, to focus on a marriage topic then leave on a date with your spouse to discuss the evening’s topic, “Advent By Candlelight,” an evening for women of the parish to prepare their hearts and minds for Advent, family volunteer opportunities, family enrichment workshops, and links on the parish website of recommended parenting resources.

“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
