Holy WashWorship Opportunities

There are many ways to participate in the mystery of the Catholic Faith.

The mission of the Worship & Spiritual Life committee is to promote and develop an environment for the worship of God and the spiritual life of our Parish. It is an advisory committee that reports to the Steering Committee. Members represent various liturgically oriented ministries as outlined below.

Church Art and Environment
Committee volunteers ensure that the church is decorated each week according to the season and celebrations of the Church calendar. Volunteers are needed to help water and maintain green plants and altar arrangements each week and to help decorate the Church for Christmas and Easter. To get involved, contact Georgie Sinkey at 761-9486.

First Friday Devotion & Eucharistic Adoration
On the first Friday of each month, Eucharistic Adoration with Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament begins after the 9:00 a.m. Mass and concludes at 5:00 p.m.  All are invited to stop by at any time to pray or if you prefer, to commit to a scheduled time for adoration. To get involved, contact Mary Longo at 761-3734 or mlongo@stbrigidofkildare.org.

Family Rosary
All are invited to come and pray the rosary each Thursday evening at 7:00 p.m. in the church. The Blessed Mother has promised special graces to those that pray the rosary; come and experience the beautiful tradition of praying the rosary with your parish family. Children are welcome. To get invovled, contact Leslie Michales at 329-4656 or mmicha4827@aol.com.

Holy Wash: Martha’s Ministry
Volunteers collect and carefully wash purificators and other linens used for Masses each week. Purificators are the linens used to cleanse the chalice between and after use by communicants. It is an encounter of holiness in the ordinary, where work becomes prayer and prayer springs from work. This is a ministry that appeals to the detail-oriented person who enjoys working “behind the scene.” Ideally, the commitment is once a month or less. To get involved, contact Carol Crum at 353-7235 or caroljcrum@yahoo.com.

Cum Christo
Cum Christo is a Lay Catholic Renewal Movement which brings Christians together in a three-day experiential weekend to deepen their relationship with Jesus Christ and to motivate them to persevere, to live authentic Christian lives, and to grow as leaders in their churches and many environments.

Cum Christo functions within the Catholic Diocese of Columbus and follows the tenets of the Catholic Cursillo Movement while remaining ecumenical. An application can be obtained from the current contact person or from someone who has experienced God’s grace through Cum Christo.
