FAITH FORMATION REGISTRATION

Registrations for Faith Formation are always welcome and are being accepted now for the Fall/Spring 2017-2018 Session. You can visit our Registration Forms & Schedules page, download the appropriate form(s), fill it/them out and bring to the Parish Office during business hours.
To access a Sunday or Tuesday schedule, please visit our Registration Forms & Schedules page (Registration Forms & Schedules). Thank you.
Faith Formation for Children under Joint Custody
We work with families whose children split time with separated parents. Don’t allow this challenge to prevent you from enrolling them for faith formation at St. Brigid.
Faith Formation scholarships are available for children in Pre-K 4 through Grade 12. Your children’s faith development is living and growing. Living and growing things need on-going nurture. Don’t let cost prevent you from signing them up for formation at St. Brigid. See Sister Gemma for more information.
PARENTS, HAVE YOU DISCOVERED “PARENT TIME”?
Whenever we have Faith Formation for children, we have “parent time” for parents. Check it out:
Tuesdays, 6:30-7:45 pm; Narthex
Sundays, 9:15-10:15 am; Church Nursery
Sundays, 2:00-3:15 pm; Library—Facilitator still needed
WE NEED YOU: SHARE YOUR FAITH WITH OUR YOUTH
We are in need of several disciples to fill much-needed volunteer positions. New disciples are needed each year to fill the sandals of catechists whose life situation calls them elsewhere. Daytime office help is also very much appreciated. Take it to prayer and see if God is nudging you. If the Holy Spirit is nudging you to share your Catholic faith with the young people of our parish, please check out the volunteer positions available on our Volunteer Opportunities page.
To volunteer as a Catechetical disciple, please complete a Catechetical Stewardship of Time and Talent form available online, in the Narthex, or in the Faith Formation office and return it on the weekend or at the front desk during office hours. I will be most grateful. Sister Gemma
