Religious Education Staff

We are blessed at St. Brigid Parish with many people who are willing and excited about sharing their faith with others. We have over 30 volunteers who give of their time to serve as CCD teachers and helpers in our Religious Education Program. Without them, we would not be able to complete our mission of spreading the Word of Christ. It is certainly an exciting testimony to the vibrant, active parish we are, when so many give so much!

This is our Religious Education staff for the 2016-2017 school year.


Reverend Joseph P. Crowley

Fr. Crowley was ordained by Archbishop Henry Mansell on May 20, 2016.  He was with us 6 years ago for about a year.  He comes to us from parishes St. Joseph and St. Peter in New Britain. 

We are happy to have him back!

Parochial Vicar

Reverend M. David Dawson

Fr. Dawson was ordained by  Archbishop Leonard P. Blair on May 17, 2014. 

He grew up in Newark, Delaware and attended UCONN.  He was assigned to St. Brigid and St. Helena Churches in June 2014.  He would like to help people grow in love with Jesus and get to know Him better through a greater understanding of their faith. 

We are grateful to have him as part of our parish family.
