Parish Ministry Fair: Join us on Sunday, January 27th in Blair Hall (the School gym) for our annual Ministry Fair from 11:00AM-1:30PM. This is an opportunity for the various ministries at St. Bridget to show you how they minister to our community and beyond. Do you like working with your hands? We have a ministry for that. Join the Rosary makers or the Prayer Shawl Ministry. Do you enjoy teaching or maybe accompanying people as they make their Sacraments? Consider becoming a PSR teacher, part of the RCIA Team or joining the Couple-to-Couple Marriage Ministry. Do you want to have a more active part at Mass? Becoming a Lector, Eucharistic Minister, Adult Server or part of the Music ministry may be for you. Come and grab a donut and a cup of coffee and walk around, asking the people manning the tables about their ministries. Enter the raffle for a chance to win a $50 gift card to Amazon. There are so many ways to get involved, whether you can commit to 1 hour a month or 5 hours a week.  You never know how the Lord is calling you to help spread His mission to the St. Bridget of Kildare community!
