Parish Life Groups
St. Bridget Women’s Ministry (SBWM)
The mission of the St. Bridget Women’s Ministry (SBWM) is to “promote fellowship amongst the women of Saint Bridget Catholic Church, because as a group we are stronger than as one. We focus on ministry — ministry to self & spiritual growth, ministry to the church & ministry to others.” To learn more or join SBWM, contact Kim Hulcher or Shannon Garbett. All women of the parish are welcome to join. We hope that you will!
The mission of the Saint Bridget Men’s Ministry is to “build a stronger relationship with Christ & a deeper love for family & friends through spiritual growth and Christian fellowship.” For over ten years, Saint Bridget Men’s Ministry has conducted monthly meetings, annual retreats & bi-annual social events for the men of Saint Bridget parish. The Men’s Ministry meets the first Saturday of each month to study & discuss the Scripture readings for the following Sunday’s Mass. We meet at 6:45 a.m. in the Parish Center Meeting Room, & finish in time for 8:00 a.m. Mass in the Church. We publish a weekly Saint Bridget Men’s Ministry E-News, which details announcements of activities & member requests for help, prayers & support. We also formed a Men’s Ministry choir in 2005. To learn more, contact Charlie Giovannetti, Leon Shadowen or Wayne Slough. We hope you will join us!
