Thinking About Becoming Catholic?

Registering in a parish is a declaration of your desire to be part of a Catholic faith community and a commitment to the life of the parish family. To so clearly state your Catholic commitment in all its dimensions brings you advantages, recognition, and responsibilities of many kinds. Being a registered parishioner makes things much easier when it comes time for an infant baptism, school registration, weddings, when asked to be a baptismal or confirmation sponsor, and even funerals.
The Parish is often asked to provide affidavits for baptismal and confirmation sponsors. They can only do this if a person is a registered, active and contributing member in our parish.
How does the Diocese of Columbus define “active”?

The Parish staff is often asked to provide affidavits to parishioners for baptismal and/or confirmation sponsors. They can only do this if a person is a registered and active member in our parish.
The Diocese of Columbus defines “active” members of a parish as individuals who celebrate the weekly Mass at their church, volunteer their time/talent, and give financial support to the parish.
These are also the fundamental aspects of St. Brigid of Kildare’s own Tapestry/Offertory Program. Being active is not about giving a specific amount of money or time–it is about regular participation. As each parishioner has different financial and time constraints, St. Brigid of Kildare has a wide range of opportunities available to donate your time, talent and treasure.
The purpose of our Tapestry/Offertory Program is to provide each of our parishioners with the opportunity to discover their own gifts and how they can share them with our parish community.
