“One Faith, One Family”

Catholic faith formation is a lifelong process of spiritual growth, increased understanding, and commitment to the faith and traditions of the Catholic Church. Our desire at Saint Brigid of Kildare is to share as a community in the ministry of Christ, living as One Family and sharing in our One Faith. We hold dear the vital sacramental life of the Church, given to us by Christ, calling each of us to act justly, with love and mercy, living in communion with one another. Following Christ is a lifelong journey and we invite you join us. Catechesis at Saint Brigid is for all- children, teenagers, young adults, and adults. Welcome home to Saint Brigid!

 

Registration for Religious Education

We will again be using SchoolSpeak for our registration process this year. Sacramental Preparation for both First Communion and Confirmation is a two-year process. Class preferences are not guaranteed but are assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis.  Please also consider sharing your gifts and talents as a Volunteer in Religious Education!  We simply cannot operate our program without the blessing of many individuals.  Check our newsletter for registration dates.

SPiCE (Special People in Catholic Education)

Special People in Catholic Education (SPICE) supports the education of children with special learning needs in our parish and school. SPICE assists our parish as we work to serve a broad range of students, including those who may be gifted and those who have roadblocks to successful learning. We believe that each child in our parish is a child of God and possesses his or her own unique spiritual and educational needs.
