Twenty-First Sunday in Ordinary Time—August 25, 2019
Updated: Jan 9, 2020
Dear Friends in Christ:
It is that time of year again, the children are going back to school, life is getting back to a somewhat routine schedule from the so-called ease of the summer months, but there is nothing ordinary about the activities going on in and around Saint Bridget of Sweden Parish!
There is SO much going on! And we love it!
In the Parish—we have so many exciting things happening right now. It is enough to make your head spin, or in my case to wake me up in the middle of the night to ask myself did I dot the “I’s” and cross the “T’s”. Some nights I wake up at 3AM and begin to jot down notes of things we need to remember to look into. To me this is a positive, it shows we are a growing parish which is vibrant!
We are ramping up with preparations for our Religious Education Program, as well as our Bible Studies, our RCIA Program, and other adult educational programs. We have other social events being planned such as our Parish Picnic (September 15), an Oktoberfest (in October—by the way last year’s chairs are willing to help but we need new chairs if anyone is interested PLEASE contact me), and our No-Turkey Thanksgiving Dinner (in November). We as a Pastoral Staff have been meeting and preparing for our upcoming Advent Season (Yes, I said Advent and it is only August but we want to be ready to celebrate Advent properly). We have a wide variety of other meetings, activities, and events being planned by the many ministries, organizations, and groups in our parish family!
So much of our life as a parish family is scheduled according to the School Year Calendar. Many programs and events start up at this time of year and that brings with it a level of excitement and enthusiasm as well. I hope you will consider joining us for the many educational, spiritual, and social activities we are planning. A full list will be provided in the near future. Stay up-to-date by downloading the parish App, or by visiting our parish website often www.stbridgetcheshire.org. It is our hope that this calendar will be a tool to assist you in findin
