~ Welcome to St. Bridget of Kildare Parish, Parma Ohio ~

Welcome from our Pastor:  Our warmest welcome to Saint Bridget of Kildare Parish, a Roman Catholic church made up of approximately 1,500 families in Parma, Ohio, and named after our patroness, Bridget of Kildare, from Ireland.  We are dedicated to the celebration of the Holy Eucharist, prayer and worship, sacramental life, sharing the Gospel, education, and supporting each other and our community through our more than 40 vibrant ministries and parish groups.  I hope the information about St. Bridget of Kildare Parish contained in this website will be helpful to you.  We encourage you to visit our church and experience the welcoming community that has had a presence in the Parma community for almost 70 years.  

With prayers and blessings,
Rev. Robert W. Wisniewski, Jr.
Pastor

Act of Spiritual Communion: 
My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Blessed Sacrament. 
I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul.  
Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart.  
I embrace You as if You were already there, and I unite myself wholly to You.  
Never permit me to be separated from You. 
~St. Alphonsus Liguori

Eternal God, in whom mercy is endless and the treasury of compassion —
inexhaustible, look kindly upon us and increase Your mercy in us,
that in difficult moments we might not despair nor become despondent,
but with great confidence submit ourselves to Your Holy Will,
which is love and mercy itself.  Amen.
