Reconciliation is the forgiveness of sins and the reconciliation of the individual with God, the Church,
    and others is God's mercy for the offense committed against him." Has it been a long time since your last
    confession?  Need making a good confession and returning to the joy of the Power of the Holy Spirit. Do not
    hesitate to ask for guidance and assistance from our Pastor.  Want more information on the Sacrament of
    Reconciliation?  CLICK HERE
    Baptism - Baptism is the "gateway sacrament into the Church." Through the sacrament of Baptism all
    are reborn in Christ through water and the Holy Spirit. Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the
    gateway to life in the Spirit and the door which gives access to the other sacraments. Through Baptism we are
    freed from sin and reborn as sons of God; we become members of Christ, are incorporated into the Church
    and made sharers in her mission: "Baptism is the sacrament of regeneration through water in the word."  
    Expected parents are encouraged to contact the Parish prior to the birth of their child(ren) to make Baptismal
    arrangements. Godparents are required to participate in a Preparation Program offered on the 2nd Tuesday of
    each month.  
    Marriage - Couples should contact the Parish Office at least six (6) months prior to their Wedding Day
    for proper assistance. St. Brigid Parish has set aside special Masses in February, June and October @ 11:00
    AM to celebrate Wedding Anniversaries.  Please, make plans to join us in the celebration of unity and love!  
    "The intimate community of life and love which constitutes the married state has been established by the
    Creator and endowed by him with its own proper laws.... God himself is the author of marriage."
    Confirmation - Recognition of God's Holy Spirit in our lives is celebrated in the reception of
    Confirmation. Preparation classes for High School students ready to make the commitment are pre-
    scheduled on Sunday mornings.  The Sacrament is celebrated annually in the Fall. Contact the Parish for
    assistance.  Baptism, the Eucharist, and the sacrament of Confirmation together constitute the "sacraments
    of Christian initiation," whose unity must be safeguarded. You receive the spiritual seal, the spirit of wisdom
    and understanding, the spirit of right judgment and courage, the spirit of knowledge and reverence, the spirit
    of holy fear in God's presence. Guard what you receive. God the Father will mark you with his sign; Christ the
    Lord confirms you and places his pledge, the Spirit, in your hearts.
    RCIA -  The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, is the process adult converts go through to
    come into full communion with the Catholic Church. . Each person preparing to accept the teachings of the
    Catholic church chooses a sponsor (an active, practicing Catholic) to walk with and support her/him on his/her
    faith journey.  The RCIA process is divided into several stages, or phases. Progression from one phase to the
    next is celebrated during Mass, amid the parish community.   A process of Prayer Study and Spiritual
    Formation is held on Sunday mornings. The Celebration of the entrance of adults into our community occurs
    at the Easter Vigil.  All interested in the Catholic Faith are invited to attend.  Contact the Parish Office for more
    Religious Education - A program for students grades K through 8 is held on Sunday mornings from
    September through April.  For more information CLICK HERE.
    Sacrament for the Sick - The Sacrament of Anointing is not only for those who may be near
    death.  Parishioners who plan to enter the hospital are encouraged to receive the Sacrament PRIOR to
    admission.  "This sacred anointing of the sick was instituted by Christ our Lord as a true and proper
    sacrament of the New Testament. It is alluded to indeed by Mark, but is recommended to the faithful and
    promulgated by James the apostle and brother of the Lord"  The anointing of the sick conveys several graces
    and imparts gifts of strengthening in the Holy Spirit against anxiety, discouragement, and temptation, and
    conveys peace and fortitude
