Kids at St. Bridget

“Wisdom leads us back to childhood.”

Blaise Pascal

Religious Education

Our job is to help kids share the life of God. From Kindergarten to eighth grade, our dedicated volunteers help parents form their children through teaching, play, prayer, and love. As children grow through the program they will have the opportunity to receive the sacraments (see below), learn the Bible, the history of the church, how to pray, and how to live a rich, holy, joyful life. We use the Spirit of Truth curriculum as our “spine,” which is supplemented by our genius teachers with activities and discussion.

Religious Education occurs each Sunday from 10:30-11:45 at Hobert Hall, between Labor Day and the 1st Sunday of May.

If you would like to register your child in Religious Education, please contact Calvin Smith.

Sacramental Preparation

The life of God comes to his people through the sacramental gifts he has given his church. As our kids work through Religious Education they will be learning about, and preparing to receive, First Penance, First Holy Communion, and Confirmation. Those children who have not yet been baptized have the opportunity to take separate preparation classes.

Child Safety

Protecting our children is our top priority and a sacred task. All of our employees and volunteers who work with children are required to receive a background check, an extensive training course, and yearly re-training. Hobert Hall, where classes are taught, was designed with safety in mind, with a single entrance and multiple exits.
