The Jennifer Stivers Campaign to Save the Lives of the Most Vulnerable
Because of the pandemic and restrictions on gathering we must reschedule the blessing of the ultrasound machines donated to the Pregnancy Resource Center (PRC) by the Saint Bridget Knights of Columbus. Bishop Knestout and Monsignor Carr will visit as soon as is practical to bless the machines and the mission of the PRC.
It is deeply gratifying to know that the three ultrasound machines are in full use at the PRC and its satellite location in Midlothian. Already, these machines are meeting their intended use &nda...
Pastor's Office March 25, 2020
I write to wish you peace in this difficult time. As we pat...
Your Word says that You answer people when they call on Your name, and that You deliver them.
Right now, we ask that You would heal those who are sick or who are carrying the COVID-19 virus without knowing it.
Heal them and protect those around them.
Provide a cure for the Coronavirus and heal our economy.
Bring a quick and miraculous end to the darkness in our world.
Whether Your healing comes today, next week, or next month, we believe that You will heal our world.
And we will continue to praise You, even as we wait for answers.
Please deliver us.
With everyone staying at home more, and kids becoming antsy stuck inside, here is a blog with lots of Catholic printouts, crafts, and activity ideas for your children to do at home: https://www.catholicicing.com

Amidst necessary changes due to COVID-19, we have cancelled the Ministry Matters interest meeting, originally scheduled for Sunday, March 22nd. We still encourage you to reflect on how you are uniquely being called to serve God's Church, and if that includes Liturgical Ministry by becoming an Usher, Lector, or Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion for our Saint Bridget parish, we look forward to making that happen as soon as we are able.
Know that we are praying for the health, safety, and healing of our entire parish family and community.
Thank you for your prayers during this time of stress, locally and throughout the world. With prayer, work, and common sense “this too shall pass.”

At every Mass God fulfills His promise to always be with us, in this most physical and intimate of ways.&...
