August 9, 2018 A year following the violence that took place in Charlottesville as a result of protests and counter-protests, the Most Rev. Barry C. Knestout offers the following statement: “As we draw closer to the weekend and the one-year mark of Aug. 12th which will once again draw national and local attention, I pray that it will not be approached with provocative rhetoric but provide an opportunity for prayer and dialogue about racism, and the action needed to overcome it.” “Racism is a sin. As the U.S. Bishops wrote in 1979 – ‘a sin that divides the human family.’ Prayer &...

Diocese of Richmond, Office of the Bishop July 30, 2018 To the Clergy and Faithful of the Diocese: Many of you have read the recent announcement and decision by our Holy Father, Pope Francis, to accept the resignation of the former Archbishop of Washington, Theodore E. McCarrick, from the College of Cardinals. Since the initial allegation of child sexual abuse was substantiated and made public in June by the Archdiocese of New York, more allegations have been brought forward that are deeply troubling, gut-wrenching and which rip at the heart and the trust within the Catholic Church. I recognize our Catholic fai...

In 2017, over 120 children and over 50 volunteers had a great time participating in Vacation Bible School. After a year’s hiatus, we are eager once again to host VBS in the summer of 2019. For such an endeavor to be possible the parish needs a team of ten committed persons to serve on a planning committee and to help execute the plan. The commitment will require regular meetings, on at least a monthly basis, throughout the year from September through the end of June, and then the presence of committee members on site (perhaps in shifts) for the summer week during which Vacation Bible School i...

Ministry Matters Invitation

Posted on July 05, 2018 in: General News

Liturgy is the most essential work we do at Saint Bridget, as the Eucharist is the source and summit of our faith.  We are blessed to have so many liturgies at St. Bridget every weekend.  Yet these cannot take place without the help of lay ministers to greet the Assembly, proclaim the Word, and serve the Eucharist.   By virtue of our Baptism, each of us is called to serve. Everyone who is baptized has Christ’s imprint and therefore is worthy of being a Liturgy Minister, whether as an Usher, Lector or Eucharistic Minister. How might you answer the call? Please join us for Part 1 of Ministry M...

Cybercrime is hitting dioceses nationwide, including our parish. If/when you receive an email that shows the parish’s pastor or a parish priest as the sender requesting you to purchase a gift card, rest assured it is a scam. Parishioners can and should contact the parish to verify the legitimacy of any suspicious request received through email. All cybercrime should be reported to the FBI at https://www.ic3.gov/default.aspx. It is up to the victim of cyber-crimes to file complaints.
