Baptism

Baptism is the great initiation into the life of God. When Jesus was baptized God the Father declared, “this is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased” (Matt. 3:17). In baptism, God proclaims the same over us, his daughters and sons.

If you would like to be baptized, or would like to have your child baptized, please contact the main office to arrange a time to speak with Father Paul.

Confirmation

The gift of God’s self to his people comes through the out-pouring of the Holy Spirit. God’s Spirit is not given only to leaders and the ultra-holy, but to all of God’s people through the sacrament of Confirmation. Through the gift of the Spirit, individuals grow into lives of holiness and joy, and the whole church grows together into the life of God.

Students typically makes special preparations to receive the sacrament of Confirmation in 7th and 8th grade, and are confirmed in 9th grade. However, older students and adults who have not yet received the sacrament may join an RCIA class to prepare.

If you are interested in Confirmation, please contact the Faith Formation office.

Marriage

The Bible begins and ends with marriage (Adam and Eve in Genesis, and Christ and his bride, the Church, in Revelation), and all throughout history God has blessed, protected, and joined in the celebrations of marriage. Since all of life is God’s, our marriages also find their meaning and strength in God.

If you are looking to get married, or if you are seeking marriage counseling, please contact the office to arrange a time to meet with Father Paul. For information about holding a wedding at St. Bridget, click here.
