Children's Religious Education

Saint Bridget Parish is committed to sharing the Gospel message with all people in a faith-filled and age-appropriate way. 

Our ministry has its foundation in our Sunday Liturgy and supports the role of the family in fostering their children’s faith. We work to bring about the reign of God through providing opportunities for learning about our Catholic faith, for prayer, for service to others, and for nurturing community among our people.


Children's Religious Education - Pre-K thru 5th Grade

The Saint Bridget Religious Education program is open to all parish children. There are two options for families with children in grades Pre-K thru 5th. Participants may choose between either the Wednesday Afternoon Program which meets weekly from 4:30-5:45 p.m. or the Sunday Afternoon Program which meets weekly from 12:30-1:45 p.m. 

There is ample opportunity to volunteer your time with the Saint Bridget Religious Education program, including serving as a catechist, aide or on the Religious Education Committee. To learn more, email Michelle Sesny

Sacrament Preparation (First Penance and First Holy Communion)

In Holy Communion, the Saint Bridget community celebrates the presence of the Risen Lord in our lives. In the Sacrament of Penance, the community celebrates the forgiving love of God. The church works in partnership with parents and families to prepare children for First Penance and First Holy Communion.

To be eligible for the Sacrament Preparation program, Diocesan guidelines state that children must be attending a Catholic School or a Parish Religious Education program during the year they are attending the Sacrament Preparation program. Children usually prepare for and recieve First Penance and First Holy Communion in the second grade.  To learn more, email Michelle Sesny.

Children’s Liturgy of the Word

Children's Liturgy of the Word is offered at the 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. Masses on Sunday mornings

Each Sunday morning, the children of Saint Bridget parish are invited to participate in our Children’s Liturgy of the Word program. Faithfully led by many dedicated volunteers, children from 4 to 7 years of age can participate in the Liturgy of the Word in a sacred and child-friendly atmosphere. During the school year, Children’s Liturgy is offered at both the 9 and 11 o’clock Masses. Separated into groups by age, the children are called to listen to the weekly readings and actively participate in breaking open the word of God. 

No registration is necessary. Any children attending Mass are welcome to join the group as they gather at the altar for a blessing before going to Church Hall. Adult volunteers are needed to help teach the lessons. If you have one Sunday morning each month to give to this ministry, please contact Michelle Sesny. All resources are supplied and training is available. 

Volunteers are needed to teach CLOW, especially at the 11 a.m. Masses. Please contact Michelle Sesny if you are interested in volunteering.
