10:00 Children's Mass

St. Brigid Church celebrates Mass each weekend on Saturday at 4:00 p.m. (Vigil), and Sunday at 7:30 a.m. and 10:00 a.m.

Children's Mass

If your children get a little fidgety or bored at Mass, join us at our monthly 10:00 a.m. Children's Mass, held on the first Sunday of the month.  Children are an important part of St. Brigid Parish, and they are very warmly welcomed. The Children's Mass is a wonderful way of teaching the children about Jesus and the Mass. Jesus encouraged children to come to him. He was upset when his disciples tried to stop them. Jesus laid his hands on children and blessed them. In our parish, he continues to welcome them and touch their lives.

The children participate in all areas of the Mass. We have a children's choir for any children that would like to sing, and different children are chosen to be lectors at each Mass. All the children are invited to come up around the Altar for the homily which is especially prepared for the children, and special handouts "Explaining God's Word" are given to each child.  The children look forward to taking these home.

During the school year we also invite you and your family to join us for coffee, juice and donuts at our "After Mass gathering" in the Church Hall following the 10:00 a.m. Children's Mass. It's a wonderful way to keep those little ones interested in coming to Mass and to meet friends in your parish community.

If your child is in second through eighth grade and would like to read at our Children's Mass, please fill out the reader's volunteer form and return it to the CCD office. I will put your child's name on our list of readers, and we will call your child to read. If he or she is available, a copy of the reading will be mailed to your child at least a week before so that he or she can practice.

We look forward to seeing you there.
